ATF Hosts Successful Student Loan Debt Clinics

In late March, ATF packed the union building with yet another Student Loan Debt Clinic. As members of a profession that qualifies for student loan debt forgiveness, this ATF class has not been one to miss!

“We know that student loan debt is a huge concern for our members” said ATF President Ellen Bernstein. “Helping our members with their student loan debt is union work.”

A study conducted by our national union, the American Federation of Teachers, reported that AFT members are increasingly losing sleep over their student loans; they’ve made decisions between buying groceries and paying medical expenses or paying off their loan debt. Dozens have even reported thoughts of suicide.

Our union is doing our part to help alleviate some of the stress.

Participants in the ATF Student Loan Debt Clinic have left with a renewed sense of hope after receiving clear information from our trainers. Debunking loan myths and common misconceptions coupled with clear guidance from our trainers have set members on a path to loan forgiveness.

Our ATF Student Loan Debt Clinics are for ATF members only. If you are not a member of your union, click here to sign up.

Members, please keep an eye on your email for notice of future debt clinics.
