Volunteer with FPA NEO NexGen sorting books at the Cleveland Kids’ Book Bank!

The mission of the Cleveland Kids’ Book Bank is to foster improved literacy and a love of reading by providing free books to children in need. Our goal is to break the poverty cycle by exposing low-income children to language and reading from birth – fostering literacy skills, opening their minds to the world beyond their neighborhood and fueling their imaginations. As a volunteer you will be sort books by reading level and box them for pick up from various partner organizations who distribute them directly to kids and families in need to keep and build their home libraries.

FPA Members: Free
Non-Members: $15.00
Appetizers and drinks provided

About the Program
With $1.5 trillion of student loan debt in the U.S. economy, student loans have surpassed every form of consumer debt except for mortgages. As a financial planner, you are going to see more clients walking into your practice with student loans if you haven’t already. In this presentation, local student loan lawyer Rebecca Maurer will go over the basics of what you need to know to handle everyday student loan questions from your clients.

About Rebecca Maurer
Maurer Law LLC is a legal practice based in Cleveland, Ohio owned and operated by Rebecca Maurer, an emerging leader in student loan law and policy. She is a graduate of the University of Chicago and Stanford Law School, which she attended after seeing the effects of the foreclosure crisis on her hometown of Cleveland, Ohio.  She narrowed her interest to student loan law when she saw the difficulties she and her classmates encountered in managing their own debt. In 2014 she published her first article on student loan and bankruptcy issues.  In 2015 she helped design and implement a student loan calculator available in the iOS App Store.  She has worked on consumer and student loan cases at Patterson Belknap Webb & Tyler LLC and the Legal Aid Society of Cleveland. Rebecca was a federal clerk for Judge James Gwin in the Northern District of Ohio from 2015-2016. Rebecca is the author of the Student Loan Law chapter of the 2018-2019 and 2019-2020 editions of Ohio Consumer Law, published by Thomson Reuters. She is a Student Loan Justice Fellow at the newly formed Student Borrower Protection Center, founded by the former CFPB Student Loan Ombudsman, where she has focused her work on the issue of transcript withholding. In addition to the student loan work, Rebecca maintains a substantial pro bono housing and consumer law practice in collaboration with community organizations in the Cleveland area.  She is a volunteer with Minds Matter Cleveland, is on the board of Slavic Village Development, and is the author of SerialLand, a blog that tracked the podcast Serial as it covered Cleveland’s criminal justice in 2018.
