Student loan forgiveness; fighting hunger locally; "Hey Mama!" campaign; The Move
As President Biden faces pressure to make a decision regarding student loan forgiveness, he is set to make an official announcement sometime later this summer. The current student loan payment pause will expire right before Labor Day.
A new analysis by LendingTree's Student Loan Hero found that loan forgiveness would result in nearly a million Florida student loan borrowers having their entire student debt portfolios eliminated.
