Understanding history is crucial to appreciating how racism permeates our work. During this session advocates will discuss how specific regional histories of indigenous oppression in New Mexico and sharecropping in Mississippi have informed their understanding of the predatory payday lending landscape in their state. Contextualizing payday lending in this way surfaced new issues and presented different approaches in two unique communities within different political environments.
