A message from Frank H Brooks, Higher Education Paraprofessional, regarding a virtual student debt support clinic on December 12th:

I am writing to let you know that NEA is hosting a virtual student debt support clinic on December 12, from 12pm – 4pm ET.  The clinic will feature experts from NEA, NEAMB, and the Savi team, who will moderate an open Zoom meeting for educators to answer their student debt questions, share recent updates on the student loan payment suspension, and discuss the current state of the student debt crisis.

 Educators can RSVP here and we will send them a Zoom link that will allow them to join the student debt clinic anytime from 12pm – 4pm ET on December 12.

 Participants can feel free to join at any point during the clinic: they are welcome to drop by any time and to stay only as long as you want! We look forward to working together to tackle their student debt questions and move towards a future where higher education is affordable and accessible to all.
