We need your help to prevent predatory lending in Illinois! Please call Governor Pritzker’s office at 312-814-2121 and urge him to sign SB 1792, the Predatory Loan Prevention Act, into law. If the line is busy, call 312-814-2122.

You can also email Governor Pritzker and tell him you support the 36% interest rate cap in SB1792, the Predatory Loan Prevention Act.

Predatory lending has a legacy of stripping wealth from communities of color, and research shows that payday and auto title lenders still disproportionately target Black and Brown neighborhoods in Chicago. Signing the Predatory Loan Prevention Act into law, and therefore protecting the assets of people of color and people experiencing poverty, is a racial and economic justice imperative.
