Tell Congress We Need Decisive Leadership During The COVID Pandemic
In solidarity, Alan Minsky for Mike F., Mike H., Donna, Deb, Kimberly, Bryan, Dr. Bill, Dan, and Janis—your PDA national team.
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.
There is 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.
46 million Americans are carrying a staggering sum total of 1.7 trillion dollars of student debt. Millions feel trapped, with no hope of paying off their debt. Sign the Petition Telling Congress to Cancel Student Debt.
Now, Americans face even more economic adversity; as the COVID-19 crisis causes mass unemployment the likes of which we’ve never seen before. 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.
