Announced as the 2024 Chairman of the Attorney General Alliance (AGA), Nevada Attorney General Aaron D. Ford has announced an initiative to help consumers navigate today’s consumer landscape. Titled “Empowering Consumers through Education,” this strategy seeks to address consumer challenges through a multipronged approach.

AG Ford’s chairmanship initiative comprises six key components: consumer rights and protections, financial literacy, healthcare literacy, AI education, cyber threat awareness, and digital literacy for responsible online behavior.

Through partnerships with consumer advocacy groups, government agencies, educational institutions, and industry experts, AG Ford aims to create long-lasting impacts on consumer knowledge and resilience. AG Ford will unveil the full scope of “Empowering Consumers through Education” at the upcoming AGA meeting in Las Vegas from March 27 to 29, 2024. This event presents a unique opportunity for stakeholders to share insights, discuss strategies, and forge partnerships in the realm of consumer education.

Why It Matters

The Attorney General Alliance, a bipartisan collective of legal professionals from state regulators and the private sector, is a collaboration between state Attorneys General and private stakeholders. Under AG Ford’s initiative, AGA will provide consumers with tools they may need to navigate the marketplace. Frequently, announcements such as this showcase the AGs regulatory priorities and can give industry helpful insights into the practices that are most likely to draw scrutiny.
