Communication: Information | Awareness | Empowerment

This year we spotlight the importance of “Communication” at Consumer Action’s Annual Awards Reception, marking our 46th anniversary. Our annual event brings much deserved attention to the efforts of dedicated and committed advocates who, through their leadership, have forged significant change for consumers. Our 2017 honorees exemplify the ways in which communication tools and technologies inform, empower and protect consumers. Their efforts have benefited hundreds of thousands of people, if not more, by enforcing laws, informing people of changes in the marketplace and fighting for improved consumer protections. Our awardees are true “Consumer Champions”!

Please join us on Oct. 17 in Washington, DC to mark Consumer Action’s tradition of working in partnership with all marketplace participants and to honor our 2017 Consumer Excellence awardees:

  • Commissioner Mignon L. Clyburn of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), an outspoken champion of sound regulatory action to protect consumers, close the digital divide and defend the public interest in the technological arena;
  • Public Knowledge, an influential non-profit that promotes freedom of expression, an open internet and access to affordable communications tools; and
  • Detroit Public Television for its compelling documentary “When I’m 65: Rethinking Retirement in America.”

Your support is tax-deductible! Sponsors will receive tickets to our 46th Annual Awards Reception and other benefits and recognition. Even if you can't attend the reception, we hope you will consider making a donation or pledge using the buttons below.
