Americans now hold over $1.7 trillion in outstanding student loan debt, with women accounting for two-thirds of all outstanding student loans. Black women take on the most substantial debt burden with an average of more than $41,400. We are bringing together Black borrowers, organizers, experts, and elected officials to make clear why the student debt crisis must end in 2022.
Advocacy groups in collaboration will be hosting a webinar to publicly discuss the impact of student debt on Black women with elected officials in support of debt cancellation. The webinar will take place on Wednesday, February 2, 2022, from 6-7pm ET and will be open to the public.
