AFT to host Public Service Loan Forgiveness webinar in Spanish

In partnership with the National Education Association, the AFT is hosting a webinar in Spanish on the federal Public Service Loan Forgiveness program. For those who want to learn about the relief available under this program—in Spanish—mark your calendars for Tuesday, Sept. 27, at 7 p.m. EDT. PSLF enables public service workers—teachers, firefighters, librarians, etc.—to have the balance of their federal higher education loans forgiven after 10 years. So far, more than 175,000 people have had more than $10 billion in loans forgiven. Register here.

Sharing more pathways to student debt relief

As the landscape of student debt shifts, and more and more opportunities allow borrowers to have their debt relieved, the AFT is using every avenue to ensure that the word is out. In affiliate meetings, telephone town halls, media coverage and social media, the union is spreading the news, and at a student debt clinic at AFT headquarters in Washington, D.C., on Aug. 31, AFT President Randi Weingarten vowed to reach as many people as possible with information that could save them tens—and sometimes hundreds—of thousands of dollars.
