It’s Throwback Thursday again, and we are excited to announce that Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) will return to the podium for this year’s Make Progress National Summit next month.

Warren has long been an advocate for young Americans in Congress. Her Bank on Students Emergency Loan Refinancing Act promised to help millions of Americans with student loans pay them at a more reasonable rates.

Although the bill did not pass in the Senate, she promised to continue fighting for the “40 million Americans out there who are trying to deal with $1.2 trillion in student loan debt.” 

Warren has also been an advocate for equal pay for women.

“In 99.6 percent of occupations, men get paid more than women,” Warren wrote in an op-ed for Credit.com. “That’s not an accident; that’s discrimination.”

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.
