One trillion dollars. $1 trillion. $1,000,000,000,000.
No matter how you write it, the scale of America’s student debt crisis is hard to conceptualize. However, we all have seen – plainly in our own daily lives – the impact student debt is having on our families.
Wednesday, April 25th is “1-TDay”. We are recognizing the national day of student debt awareness by helping our supporters improve their financial wellness. Our team is hosting a marathon of workshops to inform borrowers of their repayment rights.
Don’t miss our student loan workshop marathon on Wednesday, April 25th.
America’s total student loan debt reached over that one trillion dollar mark on April 25th, 2012. In the six years since the student debt crisis has grown by over 50%. At the same time, you fought tirelessly to defend vital programs, to speak out against economic injustice, and you supported our efforts to echo your voice.
Your actions expanded consumer protections and strengthened repayment programs we all depend on. You took on powerful billionaires, like Betsy DeVos. It is because of your hard work the student debt crisis has become a key issue for lawmakers all over America. In return, we want to ensure that you have the resources you need to make informed student loan decisions.
