THE STORY:

New Economy Project wrote -

Meet Marquisha, a single mother from the Bronx:
"The debt collectors who illegally sued me bet on people not knowing their rights and not knowing the law. When I went to court I had no lawyer. I agreed to a settlement, even though I could not afford it. When I found New Economy Project, they helped me fight back and win my case. This means I can put food on the table…it means I don’t have to worry about being harassed and intimidated by debt collectors.”

In New York:

  • Fewer than 2% of people sued by debt buyers have legal representation.
  • Debt collectors unlawfully obtain tens of millions of dollars from low-income New Yorkers each year, perpetuating inequality and poverty in our city.

New Economy Project helps New Yorkers fight back—and win. Through our Financial Justice Hotline, we have helped thousands of low income New Yorkers challenge predatory lending and debt collection.

With your support, we can help more New Yorkers like Marquisha. Please make your year-end, tax-deductible contribution to New Economy Project today.
