Jerlean McAlister

Grassroots Financial Advocate

In addition to being a GFA for Project GREEN, Jerlean serves on the board of directors for Community Food Club. Jerlean’s ongoing project is to raise awareness about predatory lending by helping people who have suffered from payday loan debt traps share their stories. Their stories become an advocacy tool that warns potential borrowers about payday loan dangers, provides critical information to our legislators, and pressures regulators to stop undoing protections for at-risk borrowers.
