If you live in Florida, please visit our page for people who live in Florida. If not, you can still help with our Grassroots Activation Initiative. Tell your friends and family that you need their help in working for Puerto Rico statehood.
Florida is a swing state, which makes it important in every election. Many states pretty much always vote red or blue, and candidates might not make many efforts after the primaries. But Florida can go either way, so candidates will be paying attention.
Florida also has the largest Puerto Rican population in the 50 states. Current senators and members of Congress know their constituents care about what happens to Puerto Rico. They want to connect with and support their constituents… but they may not understand that statehood is the preferred option.
What should you ask?
Ask your Floridian connections to reach out to their representatives.
Right now, Florida’s senators need to be bold and provide leadership for The Puerto Rico Statehood Admissions Bill. Here are the senators representing Florida.

You can also reach out to your members of Congress with our Contact Your Legislators tool. This tool will send an email to your congressperson, even if you’re not sure who that is.
No matter where you live, you can reach out to your representatives. We hope you will ask your friends and family in Florida to do the same.
