The work of the National Consumer Law Center (NCLC) and its network is profiled in the 23rd season of Visionaries, the award-winning public television series hosted by acclaimed actor Sam Waterston of Grace and Frankie, and formerly of The Newsroom and Law & Order. The episode, now being shown on PBS stations across the country, profiles NCLC attorneys and its civil legal-aid partners on location in Atlanta, Boston, Detroit, and Washington, DC as they work to protect low-income families from wrongful eviction, foreclosure, and other unfair and deceptive consumer abuses.

Executive Director Rich Dubois encouraged Visionaries producers to emphasize that NCLC is more than a single non-profit organization with two offices in Boston and Washington, DC — that through the consumer law community NCLC has worked to build for five decades, it is in fact a national network of consumer champions, fighting together for economic justice.

NCLC is grateful to the supporters who underwrote NCLC’s involvement in this program:

  • Long-time NCLC Board member Jon Kravetz and his wife Janny
  • Mintz, Levin, Cohn, Ferris, Glovsky and Popeo, P.C.
  • Boston Private
