Hemispheres: The Debt Collective

The logo for the debt collective, debt is white lettering with a strikethrough on a red background and collective is in black lettering with white background.

We have the privilege of sitting in on a conversation with Lindsay Loberg, Jane Murphy, and Susan Laws, all members of a national union known as the Debt Collective. Except for Susan, who was once a core member, Lindsey and Jane are current core members of the Colorado Chapter. Full disclosure, I’ve been following the Debt Collective for some time, and more recently have become a union member who pays her dues. We focus on the Debt Collective this month because on May 22nd, the National Contingent did an action in D. C. asking our government to fund education and not genocide. You can hear more about that below. We also decided to talk about this because debt is pervasive in our lives, and its impact often minimizes our participation in a democracy and mitigates opportunities for a dignified life.
