Act Now for Puerto Rico and Virgin Islands
By Mike Hersh for Mike F., Donna, Judy, Dr. Bill, Janis, Dan, Deb, Kimberly, Bryan, and introducing Shayna—Your PDA National Team
Progressive Democrats of America (PDA) was founded in 2004 to champion important progressive policies and to help elect progressive candidates. We’ve been organizing on behalf of people in need, like the people of Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands. Several months after the hurricane, most Puerto Ricans and Virgin Islanders remain without basic human necessities. Please contact your Senators and Representative now!
Tell them to sponsor, cosponsor, and support legislation, budget amendments, and supplemental appropriations to:
- Guarantee improved and comprehensive disaster relief to ensure prompt, efficient, and effective relief during and after natural disasters;
- Grant Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands relief from crippling austerity protocols and tariff disparities;
- Provide debt forgiveness for Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands;
- Grant full statehood or statehood-level rights and protections to Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands so that their residents enjoy the same rights and protections as all other American citizens.
Help empower a deep blue progressive wave. Contribute $100 or more now, and an angel donor will match your gift, dollar for dollar. Also, sign up to make easy, effective get out the vote (GOTV) calls. Mike “Phone Guy” Fox will help you make a huge difference during the primaries currently underway.
