By now, you may have heard of the initiative to cap the interest rates that payday and title loan companies are allowed to charge in the state of Missouri. This issue is important to many people in our community and our congregation. Tina Watson is one such individual, and she asked us to share this note.
Are you interested in the current local initiatives regarding the minimum wage increase and a cap on predatory payday loan rates? If so and you’d like to help collect signatures toward these initiatives, there will be a training for this coming up by Emily Bowen of Brentwood Christian Church. Please email Tina Watson at firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know. The goal is to gather signatures on a few Sundays at church before April 1.
