****Daily Do for Monday, September 25th****
Take action today to help the desperate situation in Puerto Rico, continue the fight against Trumpcare, and stay informed about the new travel ban.
ACTION on Puerto Rico:
Contact your Members of Congress to support immediate federal aid to Puerto Rico and Congresswoman Nydia Velazquez’s request for a waiver of the Jones Act. [The Jones Act requires any supplies/resources to Puerto Rico to arrive by U.S. flag ships. It makes it much more expensive to transport supplies and other resources to Puerto Rico. A waiver would add flexibility to recovery efforts.]
–Sen. Patty Murray (253-572-3636)
–Sen. Maria Cantwell (253-572-2281)
–D10 Rep. Denny Heck (360-459-8514)
–D3 Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler (360-695-6292)
Please also donate what you can to help Puerto Rico. Every bit helps! You can even text your donation: hispanicfederation.org/donate.
ACTION on healthcare:
