Sen. Warren just unveiled her plan to eliminate tuition at all public two- and four-year colleges, and cancelling hundreds of billions of dollars in student loan debt. Under Senator Warren’s plan, three-quarters of all households will see their federal student loans forgiven, which she says will help reduce the racial wealth gap.
Senator Warren said that the whole reason she changed her mind about Free College For All was because of youth going to these events, raising voices and concerns and asking her what she plans to do about it. That’s how she realized how urgent it is to address this issue.
It feels good to know that, as young people, we have an impact. When we put pressure on these candidates to speak to things that are important to us, we’re not just thinking about ourselves. We’re fighting for a better future for all.
