June 23, 2023

Engage with legislators, support the Equality Act, save student debt relief, and more!

Contact all members of Congress:

Contact White House or other federal agencies:

  • SAVE STUDENT DEBT RELIEF Currently, student debtors owe $1.8 trillion.  On October 1, the pause in payment will expire; interest on these loans will begin to accrue again on September 1st.  Republicans are pushing to add retroactive interest  and to revoke public service loan forgiveness.  Pres. Biden’s debt relief plan also faces a challenge in the Supreme Court, to the great dismay of the NAACP, Lawyer’s Committee on Civil Rights, and the Student Borrower Protection Center, among others, who marched to the White House on Tuesday We must make it crystal clear to our congresspeople and to the White House that we support debt relief or, better still, debt forgiveness. We don’t want to see an entire generation sacrificed for the profit of the big banks. 

  • PROTECT DISADVANTAGED COMMUNITIES FROM TOXIC CHEMICALSBlack, Latino, indigenous and economically disadvantaged communities are particularly at risk from dangerous cancer causing air pollutant, ethylene oxide. This chemical, derived from fossil fuels, has been used to make other chemicals and to sterilize some medical devices. Prolonged exposure to it, by living, working, or going to school near a facility that uses it, puts people at serious risk. While the EPA is designing regulations, there are still several loopholes that need to be tightened to help keep people safe. We can find out more about the damage ethylene oxide causes here and use the talking points to submit our comments here by Tuesday, June 27. Together, we can make a safer world.
