Participate in Consumer Protection Week, March 5th -11th!

National Consumer Protection Week  is a time when consumer protection groups and others come together to help people understand their rights, make well-informed decisions about money, and spot scams.

What Can You Do?

 Check out these tips for spreading the word, reaching local press and social media:

Reach out to your community!

  • Plan an event – Host a forum, workshop or seminar in your community and share the tools people need for today’s economy.
  • Write about it – Draft an article and send it to local organizations so they can promote consumer education through their publications.
  • Blog about it – Add a comment about NCPW to blogs you regularly read. Keep your comment brief and include a link to your NCPW event, your website for consumer tips, or consumer.ftc.gov.
  • Spread the word – Encourage your audience to tell friends, family, colleagues and neighbors about NCPW. Word of mouth is powerful!
