Lorelei Salas

Former Commissioner, NYC Department of Consumer and Worker Protection / Former Board Member, NYC Kids RISE

The Department of Consumer Affairs (since renamed to the Department of Consumer and Worker Protection) played a key role in launching the NYC Kids RISE Save for College Program, and the partnership continued to grow under the leadership of former Commissioner Salas. Commissioner Salas worked with NYC Kids RISE to democratize access to wealth-building tools like 529 plans and savings accounts as a powerful, proactive way to boost NYC families’ financial health, promote upward economic mobility, and reduce inequalities in our systems.
