The media is extremely critical to winning student loan justice. Given our small size and lack of advertising resources, we have found that the best way to spread our message is by doing quality research and working with journalists, producers, and others in the media.

News Media Appearances

We excel at making the argument for student loan justice and the media. In the past, we have appeared on 60 Minutes (top story), New York Times, Rolling Stone, VICE News, CNBC, CNN, and many other media platforms.

You can help by reaching out to your local or national news organizations that you feel we should talk to. If you have know of a good show for us to go on, a reporter we should talk to or anything else that will help to bring this issue to light, please send them our contact info below:

Sign the Petition

We are petitioning The President to cancel all federally held student loans by executive order.  He can do this without needing any tax appropriation from Congress, and without adding anything to the national debt.  Please sign and share this important petition!


Your financial support is important. We are not supported by corporate, industry, or other interests.  We rely only and totally upon donations from regular people like you.   

StudentLoanJustice.Org Founder Alan Collinge

SLJ Founder Alan Collinge is a student loan borrower. His experiences with his own student loans, combined with knowledge of good faith lending learned over years while he managed a small lending program on behalf of the federal government, made him realize that this is a problem the United State has never seen. He took his research to the media and to Washington and was profiled as top story on 60 Minutes.

Since then, he has authored The Student Loan Scam (Beacon Press), has written hundreds of articles in the New York Times, Los Angeles Times, etc., does frequent television and radio interviews. In 2008, he was chosen as one of 8 “financial heroes” by CNN/Money Magazine. Prior to founding SLJ, Collinge was associate scientist (aeronautics) at Caltech and he earned three degrees in aerospace engineering from the University of Southern California. Now he devotes himself full time to SLJ.
