cancel student debt

The clock is ticking for borrowers around the country. Restarting student loan payments amid recent price increases would not only be shortsighted politically, but it could also push more people into financial ruin. 

A collective of activists erased $1.7 million in student debt for nearly 500 former Bennett College scholars.

President Joe Biden's speech from North Carolina A&T State University is expected to address rising prices at a time when Black students disproportionately saddled by debt are among the most adversely affected by the inflation crisis.

Students at Virginia-based HBCU Hampton University got a pleasant surprise this week after learning that all balances from the Spring 2022 semester will be wiped, and no new increase in tuition, fees, room and board for the fall semester.

The Debt Collective demanded Biden "pick up the pen" and wipe out all student loan debt in an action Monday.  

Looking ahead to the 2022 midterm elections, Sen. Schumer also said it was a winning issue that could help drive voter turnout, particularly among younger voters. 

Students plan to march near the White House to demand the Biden Administration keep their promise to solve the student debt crisis, which many believe is a civil rights and racial justice issue.
