Event Description:

Student loan debt is a huge and growing problem, which disproportionately impacts communities of color and low-income New Yorkers, making it difficult for them to make ends meet, build savings, start families, buy homes and complete their education. Under President Trump, the federal government has steadily abandoned its role in protecting consumers from unscrupulous for-profit colleges and loan servicers.

Join us for a keynote address and panel discussion to explore what we can do to address this problem; its implications for upward mobility; and how New York compares with what is happening nationally.

Keynote Speaker:
Seth Frotman, Founder and Executive Director Student Borrower Protection Center, Former Student Loan Ombudsman CFPB

Assemblymember Kenneth Zebrowski, Chair, Committee on Banks
Lorelei Salas, Commissioner, New York City Department of Consumer Affairs (DCA)
Mark Huelsman, Associate Director, Policy & Research, Demos
Kavya Vaghul, Graduate Student, MIT Department of Urban Planning and Studies

Tara Siegel Bernard, Personal Finance Reporter, The New York Times
