This event builds on a new report from the SBPC and Dēmos featuring contributions from leading student loan experts and advocates. The report offers a roadmap for the Biden administration to cancel student debt for millions of borrowers who have been denied promised debt relief as a result of systemic mismanagement and abuse across the student loan system. The recommendations build on calls by advocates and elected officials for President Biden to immediately deliver broad-based debt cancellation for all student loan borrowers.
