Today’s Action: Tell your Members of Congress to push Biden on student loans!

Only 3% of Harvard University students take on any federal debt. Compare with the 84% of students at Savannah State, a public university in Georgia, who hold student debt. And 40% of current student loan holders did not complete their degree, putting them in a major predicament of having high monthly loan payments without the resume to pursue better paying employment. 

The $1.7 trillion student debt crisis is not a problem for the elite – it lands solidly on the shoulders of the 43 million middle and working class young people.

President Biden is interested in addressing this issue, but unfortunately his $10,000 cap per-student falls drastically short of the problem. But the $50,000 per-student that both moderates (like Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-NY) and progressives (including Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-MA and the “Squad” of young BIPOC leaders in the House) gets us there.

Call or email your Members of Congress and tell them to apply pressure on Biden to support generous student loan forgiveness of $50,000 per student.

Student loan forgiveness would also go a long way toward closing a clear racial gap in wealth distribution. Students of color are disproportionately impacted, both in who holds the loans and how much those loans are, so much so that cancelling student loan debt has been called a major civil rights issue. 

For example, Black college graduates owe an average of $25,000 more than White college graduates…and four years after graduation, nearly half of Black graduates owe 12.5% more on their debt than the original loan (vs. the 83% of white graduates who owe 12% less than they borrowed). And, half of Black borrowers and a third of Latinos default on their loans within 20 years.

We have an entire generation crushed under the weight of job scarcity and education costs, now struggling even harder due to the pandemic. Forgiving student loan debt tackles an economic stimulus and institutionalized racial inequities in one go – it’s a win/win situation.

Email or call your Members of Congress and demand they push Biden to support $50,000-per-student debt forgiveness!

PS — Please don’t forget to sign the petition calling on President Biden to close Trump’s concentration camps, and be sure to follow OD Action on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
