Help LLAC with your feedback: Debt Trap Survey in Spanish and English

Louisiana Language Access Coalition (LLAC) is currently working with Louisana Appleseed and the Anne E. Casey Foundation on research and education to inform the non-English speaking community regarding practices and issues around predatory lending companies, as well as court fees and fines.  These companies provide payday loans, title loans, and short-term lending products that prey on vulnerable community members who are in financial need, only to create a a cycle of poverty.

As part of our work, a short anonymous survey will help us to gain a better understanding of how these practices are affecting our community directly.  The survey is available in English and Spanish.  Please take a moment to fill the survey, and circulate it among your contacts.

Thank you in advance for your support.
