Biden Campaigned On Cancelling & Reforming Student Debt: What Happened? – Interviews Available With Student Debt Documentary Filmmakers
Laura Pellegrini & Stefano Da Frè, Co-Directors and Producers of “The Day I Had To Grow Up”, A Documentary About Student Debt/ Youth Activism are available for interviews.
President Joe Biden promised to lessen the $1.7 trillion student-debt crisis during his campaign, promising debt cancellation and reforms of key student-loan programs. One of the president’s first actions in office was an extension of the student-loan payment pause during the pandemic, providing relief to the 43 million borrowers. But the pause is lifting come October, and borrowers, experts, and lawmakers worry the Biden administration is not doing enough to protect borrowers when that happens.
“The Day I Had To Grow Up” spotlights America’s growing challenges with gun violence. Taylor Nicole Turner, a high school student at Marjory Stoneman Douglas recounts her traumatic experience of her best friend Helena Ramsey being killed in the Parkland school shooting in 2018. The documentary details the steps in which future administrations can take to meet America’s Gun violence epidemic.
As filmmakers, Stefano & Laura hope to empower audiences to be inspired by the youth activists in our documentary. America is a dialogue. The documentary brings their audience to the forefront of today’s most important conversations.

Jon Biemer, author of OUR ENVIRONMENTAL HANDPRINTS: Recover the Land, Reverse Global Warming, Reclaim the Future (Rowman & Littlefield; April 22, 2021)
Our Environmental Handprints
Praise for Our Environmental Handprints:
“This is a heartfelt entreaty from a retired energy conservation consultant to do something, anything, to alleviate the environmental damage wrought by previous generations. Thoroughly grounded in reality, author Biemer’s exhortations come across as reassuring, emphasizing the differences even tiny gestures make. . . This ends up almost as a how-to manual, with every chapter ending with a challenge: “How will you honor the soil?”; “How will you become a steward of our oceans?”. The multiple solutions make the lessons go down easily, and the concluding sections highlight international economic and political initiatives and individuals who are effecting change. Biemer’s final message is that success is within our grasp. Readers should be inspired, informed, and ready to go!”
— Booklist, Starred Review
You care about the environment—the world you live in, and the world you are going to leave behind for future generations. Perhaps you already avoid wasting energy and buying more things than you need – reducing your Ecological Footprint. Yet there is a limit, given your family and circumstances. What can you do that will truly help heal our planet?
Our Environmental Handprints is the first book to fully explore your “Handprint” – how you can create sustainability in your life and in the world. Your Handprint is limited only by your imagination. The good you do can be greater than your Footprint. It is time to put more energy into your Handprint!
Here, Jon Biemer draws our attention to proven strategies across the spectrum. We make a difference with the choices we make about the clothing we buy, the investments we make, and even the food we choose to eat. Handprint Thinking applies to shelter (eco-remodeling and LEED buildings), motion (electric cars and living without a car), and earth-friendly energy. He provides 175 proven Handprint suggestions that will help readers align their interests, lifestyle, and motivations toward a more sustainable earth.
Jon Biemer has more than forty years of experience creating sustainability including Repair Cafes, Free Cycling, Village Building Convergences, and ballot initiatives for Outdoor School and Clean Energy. Biemer is a mechanical engineer and holds a certificate in Process-oriented Psychology. He has managed utility energy conservation programs and now provides Organizational Development consulting to non-profits. He offsets his Carbon Footprint and buys resale clothing. In 2013 he walked the proposed Keystone XL pipeline route from Alberta to Nebraska with the Compassionate Earth Walk. Over the years, Jon and his wife have planted food forests, eco-remodeled their home, and lived without a power clothes dryer, refrigerator and car.
