Resistbot Petition: Cancel 50k in Student Debt Now!

An open letter to the President

Cancel 50k in Student Debt Now!

207 so far! Help us get to 250 signers!

Education should be accessible to everyone, regardless of how much money you have, where you come from, or what you look like. That is why I am calling for 50K of federal student loan cancellation. Over the last few decades, the cost of higher education has continued to rise in the US, making it out of reach for most students and families unless they agree to take on huge amounts of debt. Over 44 million people and families carry more than $1.7 trillion of student debt. This crushing burden is keeping millions—including millions of older Americans who are on Social Security— from pursuing dreams, buying homes, starting families, and even making ends meet. That reality falls heaviest on communities of color – particularly Black people and especially Black women – as a direct result of systemic racism. Right now, you have a real opportunity right now to help millions of people get out from under decades of debt after a few years in school.  President Biden, end this Debt Sentence for millions of us with the stroke of your pen. It’s the right thing to do and the popular thing as well. And no means testing, please! Thanks.
