strike debt

strike debt site

from their site:

Strike Debt is an offshoot of Occupy Wall Street

current initiatives:

rolling jubilee..

We buy debt for pennies on the dollar, but instead of collecting it, we abolish it. We cannot buy specific individuals’ debt — instead, we help liberate debtors at random through a campaign of mutual support, good will, and collective refusal. All proceeds go directly to buying and canceling people’s debt.

first heard about it via Astra Taylor.. then  (from data & society databite #39 – Laura Hanna)

So instead of making college more affordable, the GOP vision is for your parents to burn a year’s worth of tuition money on your birth. https://t.co/UxgdiySE2k (http://twitter.com/JasonKander/status/910340771357843456?s=17)

There hasn’t been a day in more than I decade that I haven’t referenced my private student loans, the bane of my existence. Tomorrow, I make my @nytopinion debut in The Sunday Review writing about related guilt and struggles. https://t.co/BLQlISzac5 (http://twitter.com/youngsinick/status/962387529927462912?s=17)
