WASHINGTON, D.C. – On the heels of President Joe Biden’s announcement to bring student debt relief to over 30 million Americans, For Our Future Executive Director Sky Gallegos issued the following statement. 

“President Biden’s plan to deliver relief to over 30 million student borrowers is not only life changing for those struggling with the never-ending cycle of debt, but also promises to unlock educational opportunities and boost the economy. President Biden understands that a strong economy should grow from the middle out and the bottom up, not the top down – and he’s shown a results-driven commitment to making sure higher education is a ticket to the middle class. 

“Even as Republicans in Congress and on the Supreme Court try to stand in the way of improvements to the student loan system, President Biden and his administration have worked relentlessly to provide relief and ensure higher education provides a path to economic mobility and prosperity – not a stranglehold on opportunity.”
