We Have a New Bill!!! Please sign the petition!

Dear Friends & Supporters:

It's been a while since I've contacted you from this website - ever since we rebranded as "Student Debt Crisis."

As you know, last year, Rep. Hansen Clarke introduced H.R. 4170, the Student Loan Forgiveness Act of 2012 and, thereafter, my petition in favor of that bill received over 1.18 million signatures!  Unfortunately, Congress failed to act and, as such, the bill died.  Which is what brings me to why I'm writing to you today:

Rep. Hansen Clarke: A Visionary Leader and True Man of the People

Dear Friends and Supporters:

As you're probably already aware, yesterday was a watershed moment for our movement to restore sanity to the way in which we pay for higher education in America.  Despite the oppressive D.C. heat, we had a great turnout - both press and ralliers - and I delivered more than 1 MILLION SIGNATURES in favor of Rep. Clarke's signature bill, H.R. 4170, The Student Loan Forgiveness Act of 2012.
