From Indivisible: “Puerto Ricans are American citizens and they deserve the same protection and federal support as any other American city or state. Right now the island remains under water, without power, and at least ten are dead. Congress must act THIS WEEK to provide emergency disaster relief to the Island. Demand that Congress do it, starting with calling your Representative.”
- Call Mike Turner at 202-225- 6465
Hi, my name is [NAME] and I’m a constituent from [ADDRESS].
I’m calling to urge Rep. Michael R. Turner to immediately pass a hurricane relief package for Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands. It is inexcusable for the federal government to not take swift protective action when millions of Americans are in the midst of a dire humanitarian crisis.
Thank you for your time and attention.
