This is a more important time than ever to reaffirm our bravest and highest values. Jubilee – the ancient concept of debt forgiveness as an affirmation of community – reflects those values.
A Student Debt Jubilee will right an injustice and affirm our core values. It is time to liberate 43 million Americans – along with their families, communities, and nation – from the crushing burden of student debt.
As we move to restore the American idea of free public higher education, let's not forget the 41 million Americans who were burdened with $1.3 trillion in the few short decades when our nation lost sight of it.
There are moments in history when a new idea forms and takes hold. We believe that student debt forgiveness is one such idea, and that its time has come. If you agree, please join us.
A student debt “jubilee” would reflect both the values upon which this nation was founded and the economic principles that have sustained it through its greatest periods of growth and prosperity.
