Building a Colorado where everyone can achieve a strong financial future.


We look for policy solutions to promote consumer rights, financial equity, and responsible lending.

The Financial Equity Coalition exists to rebalance a financial system that has favored irresponsible corporations and powerful special interests over hardworking Coloradans.  

Colorado finds itself in the top ranks of economic growth yet many Coloradans are still being left behind. Widespread racial, geographic, and economic discrimination forces many of us to gamble our financial futures on predatory products and services. The Financial Equity Coalition fights this exploitation through education, policy change, and innovative financial models. 

The Coalition is a collection of public, private, and nonprofit organizations committed to bringing financial security to communities throughout Colorado. We are educators, service providers, policy groups, and advocates with diverse work and perspectives – all working to provide financial education and help families and individuals get fair treatment.
