Tell Congress to Cancel All Student Debt

Forty-five million Americans are burdened with a collective $1.7 trillion in student loan debt.

Democrats have the power to cancel all student debt right now
without the support of a single Republican, through budget reconciliation. Canceling student debt would provide much-needed relief, boost the economy, and would help close the racial wealth gap.

They have the power to do this, but they won’t without pressure from us.
