Heads Up America: Big Announcement Coming Monday

Heads Up America: Big Announcement Coming Monday

Vice President Joe Biden and his wife, Dr. Jill Biden, are heading to the Community College of Philadelphia on Monday, where they will highlight the progress made across the country to make two years of community college free for responsible students.

It’s a part of Heads Up America’s day of action, and it will include an important announcement by Vice President Biden. 

Help us celebrate community colleges and the progress made for free community college on Monday. Here’s how you can participate:

  • Sign up your friends and family at HeadsUpAmerica.us. Set up a table on your campus with a laptop or tablet for easy access to the site, or ask your professor to make an announcement at the beginning or end of class.
  • Use this poster to write what free community college would mean to you. Snap a photo and share your response on social media using #HeadsUpAmerica. Here’s an example.
  • Click here to show your support on Facebook by sharing our post. Be sure to include a caption with your own reason for supporting #FreeCommunityCollege!

Ready to act now? Retweet this to help us build excitement for Monday.

The Heads Up America movement is a grass-roots effort to spread the word about the value of community college and to support America’s College Promise. Throughout the country, more than 9 million students stand to benefit from the success of the Heads Up movement.

Phi Theta Kappa joined the campaign and pledged support for America’s College Promise back in October. Get caught up.
