Arbitration Clauses Steal Your Rights

Do you know what is hidden in the fine print of the contracts you routinely agree to?  Chances are you have signed away your right to access the courtroom and didn’t even know it!  Included in many everyday consumer contracts are dangerous forced arbitration clauses that take away your right to go to court and instead force you into a private arbitration tribunal designed by the very corporation you have a dispute against.  The process is secretive, costly and rigged so that corporations cannot be held accountable!

Act now to stop this abusive practice!  Today is the second anniversary of a United States Supreme Court decision, AT&T Mobility v. Concepcion, that gave corporations broad authority to force consumers into arbitration.  It is urgent that Congress act to protect consumers!

The ability of ordinary Americans to seek justice in our courts, even when up against the most powerful corporate interests, is an essential part of our democracy.  When consumers lose access to the courts, corporations can get away with the worst!

Tell Congress to protect consumers from abusive forced arbitration by reintroducing the “Arbitration Fairness Act” to restore our rights to seek justice in the courts. Take Action Now!
