Today: Petition for student loan forgiveness

Hi MoveOn member,

Yesterday, Congressman Hansen Clarke and I delivered 1 million petition signatures—including yours—to Congress calling for the forgiveness of student loan debt.

Armed with stacks of petitions, we're showing our leaders that the student loan debt crisis must not be ignored any longer. It's an amazing moment—the culmination of a huge movement for student debt forgiveness. Can you help keep the momentum going by sharing the petition on Facebook?

Yes, I'll post on Facebook right now, asking my friends to sign!

I'm not on Facebook, but I'll share the petition a different way.

Or you can forward the note below to your friends via email.

Subject: Two million for student loan forgiveness?

Since 1999, average student loan debt has increased by a shameful 511%. In 2010, total outstanding student loan debt exceeded total outstanding credit card debt in America for the first time ever. In 2012, total outstanding student loan debt is expected to exceed $1 trillion.

In response to this crisis, U.S. Representative Hansen Clarke of Michigan has just introduced H.R. 4170, the Student Loan Forgiveness Act of 2012, which would extend a helping hand to those struggling under massive amounts of student loan debt.

Over 1 million petition signatures in support of the Student Loan Forgiveness Act have been delivered already. But that's only the beginning—stacks of petitions continue to be delivered every day—and we're building a movement too powerful for our leaders to ignore.
