Progressive Democrats of America (PDA) is optimistic about one thing during these troubled times: The Student Debt crisis is finally getting the attention it deserves.

46 million Americans are carrying a staggering sum total of 1.7 trillion dollars of student debt. They feel trapped, with no hope of paying off their debt. We have a real opportunity for student debt cancellation to be part of the next stimulus package. Now is the time to make sure our voices are heard.

Tell Congress to Cancel Student Debt

Americans face increasing economic adversity as the COVID-19 crisis causes mass unemployment. There is a growing recognition across the land, and on Capitol Hill, that something must be done before the burden is too great for student debt holders.

There are new bills in both the U.S. Senate and House calling for emergency student debt relief—up to $10,000 cancelled for each student debtor. Democratic leadership is deciding this week whether to include these proposals in the next stimulus bill. By speaking up right now, we can make the difference. Please sign our petition calling on the Federal Government to support the Student Debt Stimulus.

We appreciate all you do to help make progress on these and other issues. If you’ve never donated to help PDA help you pressure our elected officials, now is the perfect time. We need your support more than ever. Click Here to support PDA’s issue organizing.

    Calling yourself a progressive means doing things that are are strong ac and brave. Not calling out Pelosi for her center right ideology is where to start. And Biden, really, God save us all.
