VICTORY: Fighting Student Loan Debt
Robert Applebaum, an attorney in New York, started a MoveOn Petition calling for student loan forgiveness and it spread quickly, gathering more than a million signatures. Then, something amazing happened. President Obama responded—not with a form letter, but with an actual change in policy that will lower student loan payments for over 1.6 million people. Robert has now launched an organization called Student Debt Crisis and is working with progressive champions in Congress to provide student loan forgiveness for all students in need.
