BREAKING: Congress Acts on Puerto Rico, CALL NOW

Email header

Capitol at nightFriend,

I'm on a plane to San Juan right now to meet with Puerto Rico's elected and religious leaders. Things are moving very fast on Puerto Rico and we need your help on Capitol Hill right away.

Negotiations around Puerto Rico are critical in Congress over the next 24 hours. Puerto Rico's people are being asked to accept an affront to their democracy, a control board, as special interest lobbyists are trying to exclude essential debt restructuring tools in the legislation.

We need to respond right away. Please call your representative today and say that Puerto Rico legislation MUST include tools to restructure debt and targets to reduce child poverty on the island.

As Jubilee USA and our national religious partners are advocating for Puerto Rico in Congress - your phone call is essential to cross the finish line.

The Puerto Rican people are being pushed to have their democratic process violated ‎as a few lobbyists are trying to get Congressional legislation stripped of comprehensive debt restructuring tools.

The next public version of the bill could come in the next 24 to 48 hours and that's why we need you to act now.
