But a bill needs action. Your representatives in Congress decide what action to take based on what you, the people, tell them. They see that their constituents care about local issues, and also about larger civil right issues, and they focus on the issues they know will matter to their constituents.

Achieving self-determination for Puerto Rico will depend on the advocacy efforts of supporters from throughout the fifty states. Puerto Rico lacks congressional representation. Members of Congress will not pay attention to Puerto Rico’s status unless you speak up. Please reach out to your Representative today
