We help ensure policymakers with power over Wall Street and the financial sector act in the public's interest.
We work to elevate regulators who care more about the wellbeing of ordinary people than Wall Street's bottom line, and we fight to ensure that Congress passes laws and conducts oversight to hold the financial sector accountable. We oppose deregulation and consolidation that makes our financial system less sound, and push back against attempts by the finance and tech sectors to normalize exploitative products and systems.
How we've been fighting:
When the moment or issue demands it, we dive in on longer-term projects, leveraging our staff and resources to win big victories in the fight for transparency, equity and justice.
We use our team’s deep expertise to craft policy and intervene in debates to serve the interests of people, not entrenched power. For questions about our policy work, please contact Demand Progress Policy Director Daniel Schuman at [email protected]
