Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute Diálogos Webinar Series – Hacking the Student Debt Crisis
Student debt reached over $1.6 trillion in 2020, and this crisis weighs heaviest on communities of color. As costs of tuition and borrowing continue to increase, the negative implications on Latinos’ financial futures – particularly in light of the current global pandemic – will be significant and long lasting. Some have called on lawmakers to cancel student debt, but what would that really take? Are any other policy solutions being contemplated or proposed? Join us to hear the latest on how Congress and the new Administration are approaching student debt and potential ways to reduce the burden on Latino/a/x borrowers. Join this webinar on Wednesday, January 26, 2021, at 7:00 PM – 8:00 PM EST.
