This week, we’re taking to the physical and digital streets to demand FULL student loan debt cancellation and a pathway to tuition free college. We’ve started out big: a virtual celebration for our recent $1 billion cancellation win, and events in cities across the country — and there’s more as the week continues! Be sure to follow us on Twitter and Facebook to see all the photos!
But, we need to build more pressure online, too! Take online action right now. We need ALL of our Senators to hear from us and put more pressure on the President to cancel student debt. Tweet at or post on your Senator’s Facebook about why you support student loan cancellation. Ask them to talk to the President and show their support by supporting a recent resolution calling on Biden to cancel student debt.

Here’s sample tweet or post you can adapt for your Senator*:

.@[[the name or twitter of your local senator]] as your constituent I am asking you to support #CancelStudentDebt bc… [add a short blurb about what student debt cancellation here and what it would mean for you]
Talk to @POTUS & show your support!

Sending a simple tweet or posting on Facebook right now will make sure all of our Representatives hear from us and increase the pressure on the President to take the action he legally holds to cancel this debt. The louder we are, the more we’ll win.

We know this works. Last week, members tweeted at Senator Padilla to support cancellation, and the next day, he was a cosponsor on the bill! So take action today by posting or tweeting now!

Be sure to tag us on Facebook and Twitter so we can reshare whatever you post and show how important this issue is! And if you want to make your post more personal, record a video of why you support cancellation and share that video with your post!

And join us online Wednesday, 3/31, @ 8 PM ET / 7 PM CT / 5 PM PT with our friends at the Poor People’s Campaign for our virtual rally! We’ll be live here — turn your notifications on now to get alerted when we go live!
