StudentLoanGraphic

On July 1st, the interest rate on new, federally subsidized student loans is set to double from 3.4 to 6.8 percent.

 

The Bank on Students Loan Fairness Act would allow college students who are eligible for federally subsidized Stafford loans to borrow at 0.75% — the same rate that big banks get.

 

WATCH & CO-SPONSOR:

Senator Elizabeth Warren on The Bank on Students Loan Fairness Act:http://bit.ly/13t6WI5

(1:56, she shares a mind-blowing fact. At 4:26, she debunks the obvious arguments. And at 5:25, she makes the nicest, most reasonable proposal ever)

Join individual WNDC Members, who are hosting a benefit reception for Kristin Cabral, WNDC Member and Democratic Candidate for Virginia’s 10th Congressional District (seat held since 1980 by Republican career politician Frank Wolf).

While Kristin can’t possibly match her incumbent fundraising levels, she needs help to fund her GOTV efforts in the 10th District—a key swing district where getting out the vote for Cabral could also turn out votes for Gov. Kaine and President Obama.

Not surprisingly, Kristin and her Republican opponent have vastly different views on most issues, but nowhere near as starkly as their stands on Choice. Virginia’s 10th district is one of the most pro-choice districts in the state.

With only 17% of the seats in Congress, we need more women—and more women like Kristin Cabral. It’s going to take a whole lot of grassroots energy to win on November 6th, but with your help, it’s possible to help OUR OWN WNDC MEMBER bring some common sense back to Washington!

“I am an Obama National Delegate at Large, I got elected Because of My Hard Work in the Democratic Party, it was a Dream Come True That I got Elected, so if you help me to go to Charlotte, I will be so happy, also I love helping out in the community.

Volunteering is one of the most rewarding things I have ever done. When I help others, I feel great about myself.”

– Toora Arsala, Virginia DNC Delegate & Kristin Cabral for Congress intern

Learn more about Toora on his Fairfax Connection Profile

How did Toora beat the odds to even become a Delegate? Read that story by blogger Ben Tribbett (aka “Not Larry Sabato”) here: Toora Arsala 1, Don Mark 0+

And Toora’s hard work has not only made him a Delegate but his passion for President Obama has been so inspiring that his Mom eventually switched her party leanings in support of her first-generation American son, who is a testament to the power of citizenship and the influence of relationships with volunteers like him.

TOORA’S MOM WAS RECENTLY LAID-OFF AND HE NEEDS HELP TO PAY FOR HIS $1,000 HOTEL (5 days x $200) AND TRAVEL EXPENSES SO LETS SPONSOR HIM TO MAKE HIS TRIP HAPPEN!

WE’VE RAISED MOST OF THE MONEY AND JUST NEED A FEW HUNDRED MORE BY NEXT WEEK! Any extra money we raise will go toward his date with Miss Wyoming (see below) and transportation for future volunteer work he does!

PLEASE DONATE $5, $10 OR MORE HERE: http://www.networkforprogress.com/contribute

(we will earmark this weekend’s donations for him)

Why donate $1,000 toward a fraction of a TV ad when we can change a hard-working young man’s life?

To prove our point, this was Toora’s post on facebook after N4P raised $234 and he was bid on for a date by Miss Wyoming United States 2012 Mary David at our date auction last week:

“Had The Best Night of His Life, Thanks to Jim McBride, Lauren Hall, Anjon Roy, and the Rest of the GODC Group, They Helped Me Fundraise For Charlotte, and They Helped Me Get a Date with Mrs. Wyoming, Thanks Again Everyone, Now I am Very Excited for Charlotte!!!!!!!!!!!!!”

 

BACKGROUND: Why we need a “Yes We Can” Movement not a “Yes YOU Can” Donate campaign approach

Network For Progress Founder/President Jim McBride thinks the lessons of 2008 haven’t been learned at the grasstops and need to be taught by the grassroots: “One of the reasons N4P was created is to serve as an advocate for the grassroots people who actually make a difference in campaigns by talking to voters and building relationships in the community and that includes situations just like this.”

“ALL young people should courted for their votes and support, yet Toora, a super volunteer who has done hundreds of work for the party and deserves a spot at the convention, after an unlikely victory against party bosses to become a Delegate is also stuck with over $1,000 in expenses to participate,” McBride continued.

“Instead of learning the movement-building lessons of 2008 and investing in development and community-building programs to support hard working activists and connect with leaders of the future, the party and campaign apparatus often enables an ‘enthusiasm gap” by spending millions on TV ads and communicating via spammy fundraising emails that marketing gurus will tell you offer exponentially less bang for the buck than giving this young man the opportunity of a lifetime….that creates a DEMOCRAT for a lifetime,” noted McBride. “If we value friend-raising (facebook or the real kind) over fundraising it will actually be more affordable than TV ads and require LESS $3 donations for Dinner with Barack that most young people won’t be able to attend and STILL probably can’t afford.”

McBride has worked in communications for over two decades and ran press relations for the IAFF’s Fire Fighters for Kerry campaign during the Democratic primary in 2004. He has hosted grassroots events in the region ever since as President of the Arlington Young Democrats and DC’s Generation Obama chapter as well as a key member of Virginia For Obama during the 2008 Primary as the statewide Volunteer Database Coordinator who organized the earliest watch parties and phone banks in the region.
