This Video Nails How Horrifying The Weight Of Student Debt Can Be

There has to be a better way to pay for college.

More than 40 million Americans are drowning in one trillion dollars of student debt ― a fact that has been widely reported. Not so well understood is how students ended up owing so much or how we can get out of this crisis.

A new “We The Voters” video breaks down some of the history behind the college loan crisis through an animated game show called “Student Debt Roulette.” Check it out above.

This video is part of We the Voters, a groundbreaking social impact campaign designed to inspire and activate millions of young Americans through 20 viral films hosted by actors and influencers. The project incorporates real characters and dynamic story lines to demystify how the government and elections work and to motivate Americans to seize their power by voting this year.
