We sent letters, made calls, took to social media, and marched the streets for student debt cancellation — and the Biden administration listened.
President Biden will cancel up to $10,000 in federal student loan debt for borrowers making less than $125,000 a year and households making less than $250,000. Not just that, he’s canceling up to $20,000 for Pell Grant recipients, students whose families earn less than $60,000 per year.
This is huge. By canceling at least $10,000 for eligible Americans, the Biden administration is wiping debilitating debt for roughly a third of borrowers who can now finally start building their lives and saving for their futures.
And we want to hear from you about just that. Share your story about how the Biden administration’s student debt cancellation impacts your life.
The issue of student debt isn’t just about policy, it’s about the people who’ve been impacted and the activists who paved the way so we could have a real chance at the future we’ve dreamed of. Make no mistake: We earned this victory through our activism. Now, we’re taking this moment to share our stories, find community through empowerment, and celebrate the significance of our fight so far.
Our stories will amplify our movement to further economic relief for young people, the working class, and families. We want to hear from you.
