The Consumer Federation of California (CFC) was founded in 1960 as a non-profit consumer advocacy organization. CFC campaigns for state and federal laws and appears at the California State Legislature in support of consumer focused regulations. Recent CFC legislative issues include protecting consumer financial privacy; reforming accounting industry practices; enabling patients to sue HMO's for denial of care; holding homebuilders accountable for construction defects; prohibiting manufacturers from keeping secret vital safety information about defective products; enacting cell phone users' rights, and strengthening food safety laws.

CFC serves the public in several ways:

  • Advocating for laws that ensure consumer protection
  • Advising elected officials on laws concerning consumers
  • Directing consumer complaints to the appropriate government agency or non-profit
