PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) - As President Joe Biden takes office, one group of Arizona college students is looking to help shape new policies. Last month, the Arizona Students' Association sent a letter to the new administration laying out issues it hopes Biden takes to heart.
"This year, more than ever, young people turned out to vote," said Cesar Aguilar, the executive director of Arizona Students' Association. "What young people were saying was that we want the candidate to talk about canceling student debt."
The association is calling on Biden to eliminate $50,000 in student loan debt per student from public institutions of higher education. The letter is also pushing for the rollback of Title IX regulations put forth under the Trump administration. Some advocates said changes to the federal law discourage student sexual assault survivors from coming forward.
