Student Loan Cancellation

Because of the educators and allies who took action, the White House announced a new student-debt cancelation plan, that could forgive up to $20,000 in federal student debt for borrowers. This victory came on top of the Temporary Public Service Loan Forgiveness Waiver, which delivered $24 billion in loan forgiveness for 360,000 public-service workers over the course of a year.
