AFFIL never became a formidable, well-financed lobbying force, but it did set the precedent for a multimovement coalition in pursuit of financial reform.
In late 2008, a small group of organizers including Ed Mierzwinski, Travis Plunkett (Legislative Director of the CFA) and Maureen Thompson (a consultant to AARP) took informal soundings among many of the groups involved in AFFIL and uncovered a strong inclination to campaign for broad, comprehensive financial regulatory reform rather than narrow, incremental changes (Plunkett 2010).
