American Consumer Council
The American Consumer Council's (ACC) was established in 1987. Its mission is to educate consumers on the
purchase of safe, reliable products and services, to serve as a voice for consumer advocacy and economic
wellness in the United States, to educate consumers in the area of financial literacy and to recognize
companies for their environmental stewardship and corporate social responsibility.
In cooperation with our network of more than 30 credit unions, ACC recruits members and encourages its
members to make sound purchasing decisions that will benefit consumer-friendly companies and American-based
businesses. We communicate with our members on a regular basis through our conferences, financial education
training programs, and our two newsletters - Consumer News & Views and the Voice of the Consumer.
ACC is proud of its relationship with credit unions which are nonprofit, membership organizations that
have a proven track record for community service and a strong commitment to their member-customers. Through
credit unions, ACC has been able to reach hundreds of thousands of consumers and encourage them to become
consumer advocates and environmental stewards.
