It’s Throwback Thursday again, and we are excited to announce that Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) will return to the podium for this yearâ€™s Make Progress National Summit next month.
WarrenÂ has long been an advocateÂ for young Americans in Congress. HerÂ Bank on Students Emergency Loan Refinancing ActÂ promised to help millions of Americans with student loansÂ pay them at aÂ more reasonable rates.
Although the bill did not pass in the Senate, she promised to continue fighting for the “40 million AmericansÂ out there who are trying to deal with $1.2 trillion in student loan debt.”Â
Warren has also been an advocate for equal pay for women.
â€œIn 99.6 percent of occupations, men get paid more than women,â€ Warren wrote in anÂ op-ed for Credit.com. â€œThat’s not an accident; that’s discrimination.â€
Before being elected to the Senate in 2012, Warren served as Chair of the Congressional Oversight Panel for the Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP) and taught bankruptcy law at Harvard Law School.
