10% is enough, religious groups tell lenders

DURHAM, N.C. (7/27/09)--Religious leaders and community organizers from throughout North Carolina demonstrated in Durham Wednesday as part of an international "10% is Enough" campaign, which seeks to cap interest rates charged by banks and credit card companies. Some credit unions agree with them.

The activists had planned to march to five financial institutions, including three credit unions (The News & Observer July 23). However, two Durham-based credit unions saved them the trip. Self-Help Community CU CEO Martin Eakes and Latino Community CU CEO Luis Pastor attended the demonstration.
