Welcome to the fastest-growing grassroots effort on Facebook and the web! Since January, 2009, through Facebook, Twitter, MoveOn.org and media attention, over 650,000 people have joined this cause to make their voices heard. Our success is entirely due to the active participation of our members. As such, here's a few tips on how best to get involved:
1) The "share" and "like" buttons are your friend! When an article or link is posted that you agree with, please like it, then share it so that it's posted on your own profile for your friends and family to see. Share on other groups you belong to as well. The more often you share these links, the greater our ability to grow and reach new audiences.
2) Sign our latest petition in favor of H.R. 4170, The Student Loan Forgiveness Act of 2012, and invite your friends and family to do the same.
* For a plain english, easy-to-understand, 3-page summary of H.R. 4170, click here.
* To read the full bill, click here.
4) If you're on Facebook, please join the FSLD group and stay up-to-date on the latest news, information and opinions regarding the growing student loan crisis in America. Invite your friends and family to join as well.
5) Participate in our new photo journal project, OccupyStudentDebt.com, in partnership with the folks behind the film Default: The student Loan Documentary (currently airing on PBS! Check your local listings!). There, we're collecting stories and photos of people buried in student loan debt. Many are holding signs indicating the amount they originally borrowed vs. the amount they currently owe, in an effort to visually demonstrate how perverse the student lending system has become.
10) Join the conversation! Share your own student loan stories with the rest of the community. If nothing else, you'll quickly discover that you're not alone and that millions of Americans are struggling just like you. There's no shame in owing money simply because you sought to better yourself through education, but it certainly helps to know you're in good company.
11) Stay alert! If you find an article, video, news release or other information you believe would be of interest to fellow members of the group, post it! Please try to keep any such postings relevant, i.e. on the subject of student loans, excessive debt, loan forgiveness, increasing tuition costs, income disparity and the general health (or lack thereof) of the economy.
13) Reach out and network! As the Founder of FSLD, I have profiles set up in the following places, please feel free to join and to invite others:
*Twitter - @bobbyapples
*LinkedIn (Personal Profile): http://www.linkedin.com/my
*LinkedIn (FSLD Group): http://www.linkedin.com/gr
*Facebook Fan Page: http://www.facebook.com/pa

Thanks again to everyone who's joined this cause to fight for the middle class! Your participation is the key to our continuing success!

There, we're collecting stories and photos of people buried in student loan debt. Many are holding signs indicating the amount they originally borrowed vs. the amount they currently owe, in an effort to visually demonstrate how perverse the student lending system has become.
