A message from CDA Vice President and Elections Chair Jeremy Feigenbaum:

College Democrats,

I hope you are getting as excited for the CDA and DNC Conventions as I am! I look forward to seeing you in Charlotte on August 30.

In addition to incredible panels, trainings, and opportunities to hear from elected officials and leaders from our party, the CDA annual convention features our national elections. Each year, College Democrats from across the country come together to elect new officers. Next year's executive board has a particularly exciting task -- these elected officers will lead the Democratic Party's campus outreach during the 2012 elections.

As CDA's Elections Chair, I am pleased to announce the first of ...

Congress Hears Students: “Don’t Double Our Rate!”

Kenzi Green Posted June 29, 2012 at 3:51 PM
by , Director of Communications, College Democrats of America

Today, Congress heard the voices of millions of young Americans and voted to extend the low 3.4% interest rate on student loans. Thanks to the efforts of young people across the country, who spent countless hours calling their representatives, talking with their neighbors, and making a huge impact on social media by using hashtags like “#DontDoubleMyRate,” an affordable college education is still within reach for those who choose to seek it.

Had Congress failed to act, the interest rate on Stafford loans would have doubled from 3.4% to 6.8%, meaning that 7.9 million students would face, on average, an additional $1,000 in costs over the life of their loan. Thanks to strong advocacy from President Obama, that won’t happen.

Just months away ...

Fellow College Dems –

Today, we witnessed history in the making when the Supreme Court upheld the Affordable Care Act. With the Supreme Court’s ruling today, all three branches of government have now agreed that President Obama’s health care law is the right thing to do to move our country forward. When the ACA was made law in 2010, the President fulfilled a promise he made on the campaign trail in ’08: no one, regardless of income, should have to forfeit his or her well-being due to astronomical medical bills. Young people, women, and those with pre-existing conditions no longer have to worry that they will be denied coverage.

The Affordable Care Act ensures that insurance companies can’t deny children coverage due ...
