Center for Responsible Lending

Group

According to the Capital Research Center’s report of March 2010 – “The Center for Responsible Lending presents itself as a tireless advocate of poor and downtrodden borrowers facing a credit industry of greedy banks, payday lenders and other financial predators. Yet a review of CRL’s advocacy paints a different picture of the organization. It is intimately tied to some of the worst actors in the lending business and its advocacy has too often hurt, not helped, the very people it claims to defend.” It is a member of four of the radical liberal networks including Blueprint NC.  Blueprint is the left-wing group that gained infamy with their “eviscerate, mitigate, litigate, cogitate and agitate” the state’s leadership memo in 2013.
