Program Schedule
5:30 pm "Banking in Spanish"
In order to protect themselves from discrimination in banking our community must know what the law is and how the law protects them. This is an opportunity to learn what the law in Tennessee is and get answers from government and banking officials to questions like: • What is the function of the Tennessee Department of Financial Institutions? • Examples of different kinds of discrimination in banking. • How to file a complaint of discrimination against a bank. • How different banks in the Nashville area are helping the Hispanic community. • The benefits of placing your money in a bank instead of under your mattress. • Discrimination issues in employment, housing and public accommodations. Also during this forum your clients will have the opportunity to actually file complaints of discrimination with the THRC and make appointments to file complaints with the Tennessee Department of Financial Institutions. Moderated by: Diana Holland - Hispanic Link Consulting
