CONGRESS MUST HELP PUERTO RICO
——————————————————————————
#PuertoRicoRelief
#HurricaneMaria
Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands are in crisis, after being devastated by Hurricanes Irma and Maria. President Trump’s response has been sorely lacking. Rather than working to get them aid, he went golfing http://wapo.st/2fFJWVY
Puerto Ricans are Americans and deserve a government that will fight for them – fight for their lives. The Mayor of San Juan, Carmen Yul├Čn Cruz, literally is “begging, begging anyone who can hear us to save us from dying.” 
Horrifically, it appears her pleas to the President have fallen on deaf ears. Rather than sending help, he chose to attack her. http://lat.ms/2yR1tzo
Cruz desperately needs our help. She's asked us to “Call our local representatives. Call everyone you can. Let’s show the world the generosity, the audacity and the hope that the U.S. can provide. You are a country of the people. Just let the people shine. Let them shine.” http://bit.ly/2kbOK7e
Our fellow Americans are suffering. We and our Congress must rise up and show the people of Puerto Rico our generosity, audacity, and hope.

**ACTION 1: CALL BOTH OF OUR SENATORS AND YOUR REPRESENTATIVE**
(or leave a voice mail after hours)
SAMPLE SCRIPT `
“My name is [--] and I’m a constituent from [city], Oregon, [zip code]. Now that “Repeal and Replace” is dead, Congress must quickly pass a hurricane relief package for Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands with a one-year suspension of the Jones Act. A ten day suspension is not enough. Please act now – people will die without our help. Thank you.”

**ACTION 2: Please consider making a donation to aid hurricane victims in Puerto Rico. Here are some options. Thank you for helping to alleviate this humanitarian crisis and showing your support for the Puerto Rican people.
