Strike Debt

Produced by

So easy to get, so hard to pay off.  With the national average for student debt hovering around $23,000, a group of activists is purchasing student debt from collectors and simply "forgiving it." The group, known as Rolling Jubilee, call their movement "a bailout of the people by the people."  We speak Rolling Jubilee member Christopher Cassucio, who owes more than $100,000 in student loan debt.
