Higher Education should be a Right for All

The College for All Act would make higher education accessible to more working families.

Take Action

Tell your representative and senators to cosponsor and support the College for All Act.

In the 21st century, having an education beyond high school is the most likely route to economic opportunity. But the high cost of higher education leaves many working families with a terrible choice: give up the dream of going to college, or take out massive loans to afford it.

Bicameral legislation introduced by Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-WA) would give students greater access to an affordable college education, so that no matter what they look like, where they live, or what’s in their bank accounts, all of us can pursue our dreams.  

The College for All Act (S. 1963/H.R. 4117) would guarantee tuition-free community college, make public colleges and universities free for students below certain income thresholds, double the maximum Pell Grant, address the exploitation of part-time college faculty, and take other crucial steps to broaden access to postsecondary education.
