(Say something briefly about the issue that is most important to you…make it personal if you can…tell your story (briefly) for example,
(The problem) I am deeply concerned about student debt. It’s burdening too many people’s lives and slowing down our economy. It’s taking all my disposable income to make my student debt payment and at 29 I still can’t save enough to buy a house. We don’t eat out much or spend much on entertainment either, so I’m a lousy consumer. The small businesses in my community would have more customers if my friends and I weren’t all saddled with student debt and jobs that don’t pay enough to pay it off quickly.
(A solution) I want education in the US to be free to all
I want all student debt to be forgiven and those who’ve paid, reimbursed.
(How we can pay) There’s a way to pay off [ ] (e.g. student debt). We must change our money system from one that benefits bankers to one that benefits We the People.
(Call to Action) Please ask [ ] to study changing the money system and find out how we can pay for the better world that we all want. Information is on the website, HowWePay.US
