We are proud to announce the formation of the Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF) Caucus to focus congressional efforts on protecting the federal Public Service Loan Forgiveness program, educating members and staff about the program, and connecting them
with advocates and participating constituents. Created in 2007 to encourage and enable Americans to pursue public service careers despite the financial burdens of their student loan debt, this program promises to forgive the remaining balance of federal Direct

Prevent Hate Crimes: Cosponsor Holocaust Education Resolution

More than 70 years after the conclusion of the Holocaust, it’s now even more important to remember this tragic chapter of our history. Across the globe and here in the United

supports nearly 400,000 students and 40,000 school staff. While migration to the US mainland is expected, Congress and the Administration must do all it can to support students and school faculty to live and learn in affected areas.
