Consumer Group Confronts Insurers, Regulators On Systemic Racism
June 24, 2020 by John Hilton
The Center for Economic Justice today challenged insurers and insurance regulators to match their public statements condemning systemic bias and inherent racism with concrete actions to address inherent racism in insurance.
“We were heartened to see insurance company CEO’s calling for changing business practices to stop the effects of systemic bias and inherent racism in society. But we now challenge the insurers and their regulators to show these statements were not mere public relations, but reflect a true commitment to stamp out discriminatory practices in insurance,” said Birny Birnbaum, executive director of the center.
