Nationally, AFT is working with Jobs with Justice to give Student Debt Clinics and get people the info they need to enroll in income-driven student loan repayment programs and Public Service Loan Forgiveness. Participants are encouraged to shift their perspectives and stopseeing student debt as just a personal issue, but rather a shared national crisis that will require collective action to address.
(Wednesday, 2/1 from 3-6pm) Unite to protect health care
Trump and the Republican Congress have made clear they will try to gut Obamacare and privatize Medicare. Along with the insurance companies, hospital systems and prescription drug corporations, they will try to shift the cost of healthcare directly onto working people.

Long-term Care Insurance through CCSF
Human Resources at CCSF has sent information about long-term care to all faculty. AFT was not involved in looking at this long-term care insurance benefit, which is optional and would be at the employee’s expense. As it speaks to a real and growing need, it may be worth considering if you are eligible. AFT members may want to compare it to the long-term care insurance offered through AFT Member Benefits.
