teleconference call for ethnic media on the battle over who the
bureau's new director will be and how the results will impact ethnic
communities.

When:
Thursday, Sept. 15 – 1:00 pm Pacific Time / 4:00 pm Eastern Time

Call-in Number: 866.295.5950

The Consumer Finance Protection Bureau was created last year in
