An open letter to the U.S. Congress

Cancel Student Loan Debt

7 so far! Let’s get to 10 signers!

I am writing to express my complete and wholehearted support for the immediate cancellation of a minimum of $50,000 in federal student loan debt for borrowers. Over 43 million Americans are struggling to pay their student loans, including 7 million over the age of 50, and President Biden has the authority to cancel this debt. The cost of college is out of reach for so many working and middle class Americans. College should not be a privilege for the wealthy. It should be affordable and accessible to all. But instead, millions of Americans have had to take on debt to further their education, and students of color are especially impacted by education debt. Debt cancellation would be one step towards closing the racial wealth gap. It would alleviate the burden of student loan debt on the working and middle class and provide immediate relief to struggling families during this pandemic. It would result in more money being put back into our slowing economy. Please co-sponsor S.Res.711 and H.Res.1269 and call on President Biden to use his authority to cancel federal student loan debt.
