Today’s Action: Cancel student debt!

Resolutions are moving through Congress with the goal of cancelling up to $50,000 of federal student loan debt for each borrower. Despite this progress, the $1.75 trillion student debt crisis is still waging war on former students. Millions of young people are unable to save money, or own a home, or open a business, thanks to their debts that only seem to increase with every interest payment.

“Working your way through college” hasn’t been a feasible solution to counter higher education prices in decades. In the past ten years alone, the average cost of attendance has risen at least 25%, while the federal minimum wage has not budged. We have an entire generation of Americans crushed under the weight of skyrocketing education costs, now struggling even more due to the ongoing pandemic. Canceling student loan debt must be a legislative priority now.

Call (202-224-3121) or write your representatives and demand they prioritize canceling federal student loan debt now!

The Biden administration has agreed to extend the pause on student loan repayments until May 2022, but for Americans still struggling to rebound from the worst economic catastrophe in their lifetimes, that pause just won’t cut it. We need every elected official fighting for federal loan cancellation for every single borrower.

NAACP President Derrick Johnson tweeted, “If you can afford to pause student loan payments over and over again, you can afford to cancel it.” While the idea of wiping out at least $10,000 in student debt from each borrower has been largely forgotten, corporations and businesses across the country have had significant loans forgiven throughout the pandemic. It’s time for student loan borrowers to get the same treatment.

Call (202-224-3121) or write your representatives and tell them to cancel federal student loan debt and improve the lives of millions of young people!
