Urge the Department of Education to end its contract with Sallie Mae

Despite mounting public pressure, Sallie Mae refuses to end ties with ALEC, the powerful "Stand Your Ground," anti-democratic, pay-to-play front group for right-wing corporate interests.

But that membership has its price: Sallie Mae is in breach of its $300 million contract with the Department of Education to administer federal student loans because it didn't formally disclose its role in ALEC, which included lobbying against affordable higher education.

As if that weren't enough, Sallie Mae is taking advantage of taxpayers, students, members of the military, and people of color.

Sallie Mae has just been accused of overcharging active duty service members on their student loan interest rates and has already faced numerous class action lawsuits alleging predatory and racially discriminatory lending. The FDIC also issued a cease-and-desist letter to Sallie Mae for redlining.

Help us make the case to the Department of Education that taxpayer money shouldn't support a company like Sallie Mae.

The Department of Education has a narrow window to end its contract with Sallie Mae and reallocate loan administration and collection duties to another bank before the school year begins.

Join us in demanding that U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan dump Sallie Mae!
