Center for Responsible Lending
Since 2001, Archetype’s work with the Center for Responsible Lending (CRL) has focused on the production of lengthy research reports that contain numerous charts, graphs, and tables. Other projects we’ve completed for CRL include branding, web ads, social media graphics, infographics, holiday cards, and fact sheets for print and PDF distribution. CRL is one of the many clients for whom we produce materials in both English and Spanish.
A non-partisan organization, CRL works to ensure a fair, inclusive financial marketplace that creates opportunities for all responsible borrowers. The organization works to protect homeownership and family wealth by fighting predatory lending practices to consumers. CRL’s ground-breaking reports are distributed to the national media and policymakers at all levels of government. By illuminating unfair practices in auto loans, mortgage access, student loans, debt collection, and payday lending and providing recommendations for change, the organization has been instrumental in bringing about numerous reforms that benefit both consumers and the overall US economy. A 2012 Winner of the MacArthur Award for Creative and Effective Institutions, CRL was founded by and remains affiliated with Self-Help Credit Union (also an Archetype client).
