PETITION:

I support accessible, debt-free college and loan forgiveness for students and student loan borrowers who have been defrauded. I urge you to act, so that all students – past, present, and future – have access to a debt-free quality higher education.

BACKGROUND:

Over the last decade, states have drastically cut funding for universities. College tuition has increased by a third, while investment in instruction has fallen.

With more than $1.4 trillion in student debt holding Americans back, the time for change has come. That's why we're calling for action and support Senator Bernie Sanders' College For All Act. The bill would:

  • Eliminate tuition and fees at public colleges for families making up to $125,000
  • Cut all student loan interest rates in half
  • Provide a loan refinancing option for millions of borrowers
  • Ensure the federal government does not profit from the student loan system
