Senate candidate Shenna Bellows, Progressive Change Campaign Committee members, students and working graduates will hold an event at noon Thursday to call on Republican Sen. Susan Collins to support Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s new student loan bill. The bill, introduced Tuesday, gives existing loan holders lower rates.

The event will take place at Bowdoin College’s Moulton Union in Brunswick.

Bellows will discuss her own experience with student loans. State Legislator Mattie Daughtry also will be in attendance and current students and working graduates will also speak.

The PCCC is partnering with senators and Senate candidates nationwide to organize grassroots events calling on Republicans to support Warren’s new economic-populist proposal. Other events are being held today in Portland, Oregon, Minneapolis, and Lexington, Kentucky.
