This rally comes after the U.S. Supreme Court in December decided to hear two cases challenging the legality of the Biden Administration’s student loan cancellation program, which is currently blocked. Last month, a broad coalition convened to support the Administration and highlight the program's positive impact, lack of legal standing by its opponents, and the legality of student debt cancellation—filing over a dozen amici curiae briefs with the Supreme Court in support of cancellation.
