Take Action: Sign the National Wall of Student Debt
Have student debt? You’re definitely not alone.
Recent graduates are postponing major life decisions like buying a car or getting married because of monthly student loan payments. More and more borrowers are plunging into default, which drives up their debt even further.
We finally have some good news. The US House of Representatives is poised to pass a bill that will increase financial aid by $40 billion. We need to make sure that they don't put off reform any longer.
We're working with other student groups to create a wall of debt to show members of Congress how bad the situations become. We’ll tally up the debt level, and make sure members of Congress get the message that more grant aid can remove the barrier that loan debt creates for students after graduation.
