Cities can make a difference for their citizens and local economies by enacting policies that constrain abuses surrounding high-cost payday and auto title loans and encouraging productive market options, such as low-cost loan products and local initiatives to promote financial well-being across neighborhoods in our cities.

Texas Appleseed joined Charles Hamilton Houston Institute for Race and Justice at Harvard Law School, Children's Law Center, Inc., Juvenile Law Center, Public Counsel, and Youth Sentencing and Reentry Project in this Petition for Rehearing En Banc, arguing that a New Mexico law that criminalizes children for minor classroom misbehaviors is harmful to students, is contrary to settled legal principles, and carries disproportionate consequences for children of color and children with disabilities. The U.S. District Court for the District of New Mexico upheld the law even though it allows law enforcement officers to intervene to address relatively minor classroom disturbances. In this case, a child was arrested for repeatedly burping in class.
