• Payday Lending Roundtable Forum

    YWCA Central Alabama is cosponsoring a roundtable discussion on abusive payday lending practices in Alabama at Canterbury United Methodist Church on Tuesday, February 19, 7 - 8 p.m

    Under current state law, payday lenders charge up to 456% APR. That is a problem. These high-interest loans are hurting our communities, and we must talk about what our state can do to make things right.
