On October 11, 2017 we will unite in Washington, DC for the Unite for Puerto Rico Washington Rally. We stand together in solidarity with the 3.4 million American citizens of Puerto Rico that are suffering after the catastrophic impact of Hurricanes Irma & Maria. This is a humanitarian crisis and we need Congress and the federal government to act immediately!

We are the voice in the mainland of our family and friends suffering on the island, so lets rally in Congress to let our people know they are not alone, we are here to speak on their behalf and we will not be ignored. We demand equal treatment for Puerto Rico now!!!

Show your support wearing BLUE, RED or WHITE, bring your flags and hand held signs. QUE SE SIENTA EL ESPIRITU BORICUA!!!

OUR CALL TO ACTION for Congress and the White House:

* We call for an expansive “Marshall Plan” like approach for Puerto Rico’s recovery and reconstruction. This will help the island stabilize its finances, prevent an even greater outmigration to the mainland and unleash Puerto Rico’s full economic potential and capacity in a sustainable way.

* We urge Congress to approve a substantial federal emergency funding package. This is essential to meet the IMMEDIATE and long-term recovery needs of 3.4 million U.S. citizens on the island.

* We petition Congress and the President to permanently exempt Puerto Rico from the Jones Act maritime shipping law. For decades the outdated and anticompetitive requirements of this law have led to higher shipping costs that have negatively impacted the island's economy and will slow down the long-term economic recovery if reinstated.
