Support the Sanders Plan for Puerto Rico Climate Justice and Rebuilding

Aid our fellow Americans in Puerto Rico and U.S. Virgin Islands immediately, and co-sponsor the just and comprehensive relief and recovery legislation introduced by Senators Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren.

Why is this important?

President Donald Trump, Majority Leader Paul Ryan, and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell are failing to act to help the people of Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands survive and rebuild from the devastation of the fossil-fueled Hurricane Maria.

The 3.5 million American citizens of Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands have no representation in Congress -- they need all of us to demand action from our elected leaders.

Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont has introduced legislation to mobilize all the resources and assets needed to restore electricity, provide clean water and food, a safe haven and access to medical care. Senators Elizabeth Warren, Kirsten Gillibrand, Kamala Harris, Ed Markey, and Richard Blumenthal are original co-sponsors.

The plan includes a total waiver of the cost of matching funds to receive federal assistance, rejects privatization efforts, and promotes a new resilient, decentralized and renewable energy-based grid.

Congress needs to act — every member of the House and Senate should co-sponsor and pass this critical legislation to help our fellow citizens in Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
