In 16 days, student loan rates are set to double—if Congress fails to act.
That's why on Thursday, June 27, just before the deadline, we're organizing a national day of action to make sure that Congress hears our message loud and clear: Don't let student loan rates double!
Can you stand with students across the country by hosting a Bank on Students action on June 27 in Inwood?
Yes! I can host a Bank on Students Day of Action!
MoveOn members have been doing emergency organizing to make sure that the Republican proposal to double the rate of interest on student loan debt doesn't pass. After an emergency briefing with Senator Elizabeth Warren last week, hundreds of MoveOn members took immediate action by going directly to their members of Congress and telling their student debt stories. Students across the country are also organizing Bank on Us actions at their upcoming graduations.
The June 27 Bank on Students actions will ramp up the pressure on Congress to do the right thing and stop student loan rates from doubling.
Hosting an event is simple. All you have to do is pick a time and a location, either outside of your local congressional office, on campus, or outside of a local lender like Fannie Mae, and then register your event through the link below. After you register your event, we'll recruit other MoveOn members to it, and we'll make sure you have everything you need for a successful Bank on Students action.
We've got momentum on our side—but we need members like you to help amplify the voices of students across the country by organizing Bank on Students actions in your community. Can you stand with students across the country by hosting a Bank on Students action on June 27 in Inwood?
Thanks for all you do.
