Liss connection

Virginia Student Power Network works closely with Jon Liss and his New Virginia Majority.

People's Congress

In September 2015, Virginia Student Power Network organizers joined our organizational partner, New Virginia Majority, for their first annual People's Congress! It was incredible to build solidarity around the state, for campaigns fighting around mass incarceration, immigrant justice, and debt-free higher education.[48]

Krupicka connection

Rob Krupicka

Virginia Student Power Network‎ Hearing on Student Debt — with Rob Krupicka at Virginia General Assembly January 2015.[49]

Delegate Rob Krupicka (D-Alexandria) met with the Virginia Student Power Network, a coalition of student activists concerned about college access and affordability, today to discuss chronically increasing tuition and student debt rates.

“If we want to invest in Virginia’s economy, we must begin with education,” Delegate Krupicka stated. “Instead of penalizing young adults by hiking up tuition rates and requiring them to take on massive amounts of debt to finance their education, we should be promoting sensible ways to increase college affordability and helping our students prepare for tomorrow’s jobs.”

Delegate Krupicka continued that Virginia could start this process through his bill, HB 1877, by allowing certain coal tax credits to expire and using that revenue to fund the Virginia Guaranteed Assistance Program, 50% of which would be reserved for students from coal districts. “Whether we like it or not, Virginia’s coal tax credits are not working and reserves are quickly drying up. In order to prepare for the future, we must begin investing in the students of Southwest Virginia and our entire Commonwealth. Providing an affordable college degree would ensure that students can graduate and bring their success back into their communities by buying homes and starting businesses.”

The Virginia Student Power Network’s conference was also hosted by the New Virginia Majority. Tram Nguyen, Co-Executive Director of New Virginia Majority, said "Delegate Krupicka’s bill would lower the need for students to borrow and make it more likely for them to finish a degree. Moreover, there will be funds dedicated to students from counties in the southwestern part of the state that has been hardest hit by the economic downturn and that could stand to benefit the most from strong investment in education and worker training. This is an important issue to young voters, students, as well as parents."[50]
