Our communities are struggling in the midst of the COVID pandemic. Millions of us are facing eviction and food insecurity, while suffering from exploding medical costs, unpayable bills, and the perpetual fear of illness.
But even before the pandemic, 45 million of us were struggling with $1.8 trillion dollars worth of student loan debt, with over a million defaulting every year. As federal and state funding is stripped and tuition rises. we’re forced to take on more and more debt to go to school. Our higher education system is broken.
We’re demanding that Joe Biden and his administration act immediately and #CancelStudentDebt — all of it — and build a pathway to tuition free college.
Here are some things you can do today to help.
