WASHINGTON, DC - Wisdom Cole, National Director of the NAACP Youth and College Division, released the following statement in response to President Biden's student loan repayment extension.

"President Biden, student loan debt is a racial and economic justice issue that stains the Soul of America. With each and every repayment extension, you make a stronger case for canceling it. 

At this point, just cancel it. $50,000 is the bare minimum. $10,000 is not enough."
