Supporting the cause of 45 million Americans, who together owe over $1.7 trillion in student debt, the December 12th Movement and the Cancel Student Debt Coalitions hosted an April 30th rally outside the Midtown Manhattan office of Majority Leader Sen. Chuck Schumer.

“The burden of student debt falls disproportionately on working class, poor students of color,” said attorney Roger Wareham, international secretariat of the December 12th Movement. “Particularly on Black women. President Biden can address this historic inequality by issuing an executive order canceling student debt.” They went to Schumer’s office “to urge him to support our campaign and deliver our message to the president.”
