This action is for everyone who lives in Utah. We want to organize people to put pressure on members of Congress to cancel all student debt and make public universities completely free. This can take many forms. Reach out to each other, start talking and making plans. Here is some information that you might find helpful.
Senators Mitt Romney and Mike Lee (both Republicans) have not said they support the College for All 2019 bill. Can you convince them to co-sponsor it? This bill would cancel all student debt and make college free.
Use the comments below to plan and coordinate with each other on a state-wide level.
The Indivisible Guide provides good advice about how to set up a meeting with your members of congress (or the people currently campaigning for office), how to show up at town halls, how to write letters to the editor, etc. We can do all of that and more. Feel free to get creative and come up with your own plans in addition to these tried and true methods.
