CHICAGO – CTU President Stacy Davis Gates today issued the following statement regarding the Supreme Court’s decisions to upend relief for student loan borrowers and roll back rights of the LGBTQIA community: “Today, the Supreme Court’s decisions to block the Biden administration’s student debt relief plan and their move to restrict the rights of the LGBTQIA community represent yet another attack on students, the Black and Brown community and all those seeking to live out their American Dream. Today’s decision comes on the heels of the court’s move yesterday to gut Affirmative Action in higher-education admissions, and it has turned a blind eye to the compounded impact of racism and discrimination on our nation.”
This resolution calls for student debt cancellation. The House of Delegates adopted the resolution at its March 9, 2022 monthly meeting.
The CTU and the AFT are hosting a free “train the trainer” professional development for members interested in learning about student debt in order to help their fellow members reduce their student debt.
