Taking a Stand


As you may have heard in the news lately, there is the possibility that unless Congress acts soon, interest rates on federal student loans will
double to 6.8% on July 1st, 2012. Please reach out to Congress if you view this as something that would negatively impact you and/or the individuals you work You can
share the following:
• Why is a college education important to you?
• What impact does student debt have on you?
• How would your life change if the burden of debt was lifted?
