Consumer Financial Protection Bureau Letter from Richard Cordray

This month we recognize the 50th anniversary of President Kennedy’s 1962 message to Congress that laid out a core set of consumer principles that still resonate today: the right to safety, the right to be informed, the right to choose, and the right to be heard. Consumer organizations around the world now mark this date – March 15 – as World Consumer Rights Day.
