Let’s face it: 12 years of education is not enough in today’s world.
The American Families Plan will give every American 2 years of free community college. And it will make college more affordable for millions of students.

“Middle-class Americans have been borrowing against their futures on the promise that a college education will give their families the safety & security they need to thrive. We now know that student loan debt does just the opposite.” #CancelStudentDebthttps://t.co/YUxM1iab83

The jobs that are going wanting are in the trades bc we’ve been convinced that everyone must go to college. Plumbers, welders and electricians are in short supply but truck drivers, retail and restaurant workers as well as paper shufflers are in great danger. “Work” is obsolete. https://t.co/6nue9w6aV6

Key policies that have been progressive sponsored bills for more than a decade and now being pushed by @POTUS:
– Free pre-k and community college
– Tax the rich and corporations
– Paid family leave
– Childcare and school meals
That’s the power of organizing, let’s keep going 💪🏽

I stand in solidarity with @GSOCUAW graduate workers at NYU who are on strike for living wages, affordable health care, and decent working conditions. We are fighting for college for all and dignity for the workers who make our universities great. #StrikeonNYU
