Drop Student Debt Call

Student loan debt in the United States now exceeds $1 trillion. Higher education is increasingly treated as an individual commodity, rather than a public good or an investment in our collective future.

Now is the time to build a movement capable of winning free higher education for all while demanding a short term reform which would throw a lifeline to 37 million student debt holders. Join our campaign to make student loan repayment simple and fair, jump start the economy and create jobs.

Join the campaign briefing to learn our goals, strategies and tactics, and most importantly, how you can get involved!

RSVP for the conference call information. NOTE: this call is at 7pm Eastern Time (6CT, 5MT, 4PT).
