Action: Ask Govenor to send National Guard to Puerto Rico

Stand with our Fellow Citizens in Puerto Rico

FEMA is pulling the Army Corps of Engineers out of Puerto Rico

While thousands of Puerto Ricans are still without power and the housing shortage continues. FEMA has ordered the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to leave Puerto Rico by May 18. Take a stand for our Puerto Rican sisters and brothers and call your governor and your members of Congress.  The State of Washington has corps members from Walla Walla serving there, so ask Governor Inslee to do his part.

Action: Ask your Govenor to send National Guard troops to help Puerto Rico.

Script:

Hi, I’m from [ZIP CODE] and I’m concerned about our fellow citizens in Puerto Rico. 20,000 people there are still without power, and FEMA has ordered the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to leave by May 18th. I know Governor Inslee is under pressure to send National Guard troops to the border with Mexico, but I would prefer we sent them to Puerto Rico to help them rebuild.

Action: Call your members of Congress offices and ask them to advocate for allowing Army Corps’ power crews to stay.
