To forgive outstanding Federal and private student loans.

The U.S. Department of Education mission proclaims: Our mission is to promote student achievement and preparation for global competitiveness by fostering educational excellence and ensuring equal access.

However, you are aware that more than 44.7 million Americans are currently struggling to pay their student debt.  The U.S. Department of Education has loaned more than 1.6 trillion U.S. dollars in Federal Student Aid to fulfill its mission, even when millions of college educated Americans were underemployed or unemployed prior to COVID-19.  I am submitting this petition to ask you for help, not only for me, but for millions of other educated Americans who were told that education is the great equalizer to get out of poverty, but because most of us already come from asset poverty levels, federal student loan debt only contributed to our economic power deficits.  We are educated but unable to compete in the local and global economy because of the financial burden we experience every day.  Additionally, many employers regardless of their diversity and inclusion programs continue to deny equal access for gainful employment and fair wages.  It is extremely difficult to fully experience quality of life when we are denied employment opportunities because according to recruiters and hiring managers, we, college educated men and women, lack years of experience, skills, or the right credentials.  We were asked to earn our degree to compete for quality jobs, and after all our hard work, employers create new roadblocks.  I strongly believe that nearly 45 million Americans who cannot pay their student loan debt is because of the multi-structural barriers imposed upon us by institutional systems.  It is a calamity that we cannot get ahead in life in our country, the United States of America.  Please support initiatives to forgive our student loan debt, or at least develop accountability policies to ensure colleges and universities stop mass producing educated students who will be rejected by employers because they do not have the custom-made experience and skills in every aspect of the job description. Help us to stop sinking into deeper asset poverty.  Help us to experience our American Dream!
