Holy Trinity’s Parish Organizing team has been working hard during the past year to address the issue of payday lending. Two goals identified by our organizing team are to achieve legislative change that would put limits on payday lending and to provide a more just alternative for people in need of emergency loans. We have been quite pleased by the interest others outside of Holy Trinity have shown in this project and the willingness by several community organizations to work with us as partners. Over the next few weeks we’ll be taking steps to form a board and establish as our own nonprofit. Along with Holy Trinity members, the board will be made up of representatives from several community organizations and a neighborhood bank.
