Friends:

Today, the President delivered remarks at the University of Iowa at Iowa City and continued his call for Congress to stop interest rates on student loans from doubling.

If Congress doesn’t act, interest rates will double on July 1 for more than 7.4 million students with subsidized federal Stafford Loans.  Approximately 986,494 Hispanic borrowers would see their loans increase.  To out-educate our global competitors and make college affordable, Congress needs to stop the interest rate on these student loans from doubling.

Please join Julie Rodriguez of the White House Office of Public Engagement and Jose Rico, Executive Director of the White House Initiative on Educational Excellence for Hispanics for a conference call on President Obama's efforts to call on Congress to put forward legislation to stop interest rates from doubling.  

We ask that you share this invitation with your networks and affiliates.
