NAACP Statement and Fact Sheet on Student Debt Cancellation

Derrick Lewis - NAACP - Cancel Student Debt

"Finally, it might just be student debt cancellation week this week. In the coming days, President Biden has the opportunity to cancel at least $50,000 per borrower to address the student debt crisis that has burdened Black borrowers and families across America. As time continues, the needs of the American people have not — and will not — change without substantial cancellation. If student debt repayments can be paused over and over and over again, there's no reason why the President cannot cancel a minimum of $50,000. Do it to reduce the racial wealth gap, do it to capture the interest of many who will participate in the November election, do it for the future of American families and communities. Every generation will be grateful you did."
