National Consumer Protection Week is a national campaign advocating consumers to be better informed of their rights and to seek out information to make sound decisions. Agencies such as the IRS, Federal Trade Commission, and the United States Postal Service along with organizations such as National Urban League, National Council of La Raza, and NeighborWorks America have come together to make valuable information available to consumers as well as supply resources for businesses to join this event.
