Americans for Fairness in Lending Records


In 2010, Richard L. D. and Marjorie J. Morse Department of Special Collections at Hale Library, Kansas State University, became the repository for the records of the Americans for Fairness in Lending (AFFIL) organization which was based out of the 77 Summer Street, Boston, Massachusetts between 2006 and 2010. Originating with a small office staff as an offshoot from the National Consumer Law Center (NCLC) in 2006, AFFIL heavily utilized web managers, media relations, polling firms and other consumer groups to raise public "awareness of predatory lending practices." In 2008, AFFIL tightened their focus towards achieving "a dream of a federal regulator wholly devoted to consumer finance." They supported the 2008 Presidential Election by promoting then-Senator Barack Obama's campaign for financial/bank reform and attacking his Republican challengers, Senator John McCain and Alaska Governor Sarah Palin. They were also instrumental in the final passage of the 2010 Dodd-Frank Bill, which established an independent consumer protection bureau within the Federal Reserve to protect borrowers against abuses in mortgage, credit card, and other types of lending. Several of AFFIL's files include such companies as Mac, Lehman Brothers, HSBC, Fair Isaac Corporation, MNBA, and Saturn.

The arrangement of these records reflect the non-profit organization's multi-faceted approach to raising national awareness on dubious lending practices and the means with which to end them. They are organized in the following manner: 1) Administrative Files; 2) Meetings; 3) Research; 4) Publicity.

The Americans for Fairness in Lending Records (2000-2010) provides researchers with an in-depth perspective of a consumer group and their development of an issue-centric national campaign against special interest groups to affect a change in congressional legislation and the outcome of a presidential election. Specializing in unfair lending practices, these papers contain the memos, reports, web data administration, correspondence (emails and letters), grant proposals, meeting minutes, legal agreements, artifacts, publicity (print and electronic), trademark certificates, and research of a non-profit organization (NPO). Some of the subjects include specious credit card payment schemes, mortgage lending, refund anticipation loans, and pay-day loans as well as both student and military family loans. The papers also include the organization's relationship with the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN), NCLC, Housing and Economic Rights Advocates (HERA), Care 2, the Consumer Federation of America (CFA), the Annie Casey Foundation, AARP, Americans for Financial Reform (AFR), the Sunlight Foundation, the National Endowment for Financial Education (NEFE), the Ford Foundation, the National Council of La Raza, the Federal Reserve Board, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), the National Association of Consumer Advocates (NACA), Travis Plunket, and Elizabeth Warren.

Scope and Content

The Americans for Fairness in Lending (AFFIL) Records (2000-2010) consists primarily of memos, reports, web data administration, research correspondence (emails and letters), artifacts, and publicity (print and electronic) generated by a non-profit organization (NPO) underwritten primally by large grants from the Beldon Russonello & Stewart, Ford, and the Annie Casey Foundation to advocate for changes in state and federal laws governing business lending practice. The papers, collected into seven boxes, have been arranged to reflect the organization's multifaceted public relations campaign against unfair lending practices in tandem with consumer state and national-level events, including the release of independent film documentaries, the rise of social media programs, the 2008 presidential election, the 2009 Credit Card Accountability Responsibility and Disclosure (CARD) Act and the 2010 passage of the Dodd-Frank Bill, which created the federal Consumer Protection Bureau.

The collection is organized into four series: 1) Administrative Files; 2) Meetings; 3) Research; 4) Publicity.

The Administrative Files Series (2004-2010) consists of two boxes of correspondence (print and email), handbooks, grant applications, meeting minutes, letters of agreement, and employee notes relating to organizational growth. They are arranged in alphabetical order by subject. Some noteworthy items relating to the internal structure of the organization, including the "All About AFFIL" handbook, the search for outside funders, notes relating to conference calls with consumer movement experts, and the organization's strategic plan for the 2008 election cycle. Another key feature of this series includes AFFIL's agreements with the Ford foundation, the public relations firm of Benesen Jansen Advertizing, the National Consumer Law Center, and Public Interest Research Group (PIRG) project agreements. Finally, researchers of social media, such as Youtube and blogs, will also find several topics in this series of special interest, including the development of the organization's website, the tracking of web statistics, the creation of electronic contented targeting internet users, and the on-line outreach initiatives.

The Meetings Series (2005-2010) spans two boxes arranged in alphabetical order by subject and by date, containing correspondence, notes and annotated research utilized in the planning and execution of discussions concerning different issues concerning the organization. The majority of the files in this series concern the formulation and execution of AFFIL's public interest policies. Several folders relate to the division of administrative tasks and the formation of business policies for committee assignments, partners, contractors, consultants, the press, and the general consumer movement community, including AFFIL's general principles, field outreach strategy sessions as well as staff meetings and periodic discussions with the National Consumer Law Center. Other files contain documentation related to the organization's periodic updates to funders concerning their ongoing activities, including the Ford Foundation and the Annie Casey Foundation. Still other files concern conversations between the organization and Magnolia Studios in trying to create a public relations campaign to promote AFFIL issues through the release of their a documentary on American predatory lending business practices, Maxed Out. Other sections of this series include files relating to conversations between employees and the Federal Reserve Board, whistle-blowers, lending victims, and members of the military. Finally, this series also collects material and advice provided in conversations with outside firms, such as Benesen Jensen, focus groups reviewing advertizing campaigns, the National Council of La Raza, and web-based providers.

The Research Series encompasses two boxes of reports, newsletters, internet data, court documents, whistle blower, witness, and victim case files, government documents, and internally generated public relations campaign data. Arranged in alphabetical order by date, these files comprise the heart of the collection, revealing the sources, data, and political focus of the Americans for Fairness in Lending. Some folders contain information generated by the United States government, including the Federal Reserve Board, National Usury Cap Legislation, S.500, 2009, and the California Reinvestment Act. Other folders collect documents relating to different aspects of credit card and intermediary lending company operations, including Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, medical debt, the Navy Federal Credit Union, the case files of whistle blower, witnesses, and victims, Ritzen v Chase court files, and a brief history of the practice of usury. Still other folders collect lending information generated by the entertainment industry, consumer groups and noted AFFIL associates, including the television show Boston Legal, ACORN, AARP, the Legal Aid Society, the NAACP, the National Community Reinvestment Coalition, and the Consumer Federation of American. Several folders also contain information collected by AFFIL contractors, including focus group data, Kansas district voting patterns, marketing statistics, and targeted population demographics. Finally, this series also contains accumulated consumer lessons from different sources on a wide variety of topics, including Christmas holiday tips, lending and collection abuse guides, mortgage advise, student loans, and payday provisions.

The Publicity Series spans three boxes, collecting the artifacts, posters, and media related to the organization's public relations campaigns. Several folders collect documents generated for Maxed Out Screenings, including fliers, questionnaires, house party lists. Other files hold fact cards, business cards, fliers, press kits, and reports, which AFFIL distributed at consumer conferences. Some of the artifacts collected in this series also include promotional folders, hats, and visors. The strength of this series, however, remains the collection of DVD, CD, microcassette, VHS recordings of AFFIL videos and advocate interviews on several news magazine programs, including Nightline, Fox Business, and 60 Minutes. Finally, a number of small and large posters depicting lending and mortgage horror stories featured as part of AFFIL's on-going campaigns have been retained for preservation in this series.
