HISTORY HAS BEEN MADE!!! – This summer, President Obama signed one of the most significant pieces of financial regulatory legislation passed since the Great Depression. These reforms will bring transparency and accountability to Wall Street and protect consumers on Main Street. Let’s ensure that this historic law is implemented effectively and that all New Jerseyans are informed as programs are established and new rules and guidelines are set.

With compromises being made by all sides, it is now time to roll up our sleeves and make this law work for New Jersey. The success (or failure) of financial reform will depend on how well we understand, publicize and implement the law and the opportunities it presents. It is vitally important that all sectors of the population who will be touched by this legislation continue to work together in a strong partnership as this new law becomes a reality.

Please join stakeholders of financial reform- including consumer advocates, community leaders, elected officials, bankers, regulators, labor leaders, seniors, academics, students and members of the public gather to discuss what’s in the law, what’s not in the law and where we go from here.

Speakers will outline the major provisions of the new law, the policy options, and the impact on consumers, investors and small business owners. State and national reform experts will also discuss the establishment of the new Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and how it will expand consumer safeguards. Additionally, panelists will explore the effect of the new law on the flow of capital back into our communities and the impact it will have on asset building opportunities.

Please RSVP by Friday, September 10, 2010.

Admission is free. Lunch will be served. Seating is limited. Please RSVP online to reserve your space. You may also register by calling the New Jersey Citizen Action Education Fund at 732-246-4772 ext. 18. Please include your name, organization or business, title, phone, email, and address including city, state, and zip code.
