I pledge to be a student loan voter, someone who supports affordable higher education and common sense solutions to the student debt crisis that is holding back our economy.

I pledge to push my representatives to uphold the policy reforms included in The Checklist to Support Student Loan Borrowers and to support 
policy makers as they work to make these reforms a reality.

I pledge to be a Student Loan Voter and to support policy makers in their work to implement The Checklist to Support Student Loan Borrowers.
