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!
