Student Debt Forgiveness Now!
Over 1.2 million supporters signed the original petition urging lawmakers to forgive student debt to stimulate the economy.
Now, lawmakers are responding to your call. Senator Elizabeth Warren has a real plan to end the student debt crisis. We need all of you to voice your support!
ADD YOUR NAME: Student debt forgiveness now and free college for the future.
America faces a student debt crisis because the government decided instead of treating higher education like our public school system — free and accessible to all Americans — they’d cut taxes for billionaires and big corporations.
The first step in ending this crisis is to deal head-on with the $1.5 trillion in student debt that is weighing down millions of people.
Elizabeth Warren has a transformational plan that forgives up to $50,000 in student loan debt.
The plan for broad student debt forgiveness will:
Forgive debt for more than 95% of the nearly 45 million Americans with student loan debt;
Wipe out student loan debt entirely for more than 75% of the Americans with that debt;
Substantially increase wealth and reduce wealth gaps for Black and Latinx families;
Provide an enormous middle-class stimulus that will boost economic growth
Erasing student debt that’s holding down generations of Americans isn’t enough. Step two is creating a tuition and debt free college system that ensures that we never have another student debt crisis again.
The plan for universal free college will:
Give every American the opportunity to attend a two-year or four-year public college without paying any tuition or fees;
Make free college truly universal by making higher education more inclusive to every American, especially lower-income, Black, and Latinx students, without the need to take on debt to cover costs
