C.L.E.A.R. stands for Cancel Loans for Education and Reparations. The C.L.E.A.R. Campaign mobilizes young Georgians—particularly Black and brown young people—to advocate for the cancellation of all student loan debt.
- Black borrowers taking on 85 percent more student loan debt than their white counterparts,
- Four years after graduation, nearly half of Black students owe an average of six percent more than they borrowed.
- 67% of Black registered voters in Georgia believe that student loan debt should be a priority because of its disproportionate impact on Black people
President Biden put forth a plan in 2022 that would cancel up to $20,000 for Pell Grant recipients and $10,000 for everyone else making under $125,000. Now, that plan has been legally challenged, and is currently being heard at the Supreme Court. Canceling student loan debt would decrease the racial wealth gap and help us secure the financial futures we were promised if we got a college education.
- The cancelation of all student loan debt for all borrowers.
