Over the last two months, hundreds of thousands of Americans have had their lives ripped apart by Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria.
Florida, Texas, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands are facing the biggest devastation they have seen in decades.
Yet the government has not provided communities what they need to save lives and get back on their feet. For many people impacted, emergency funds for adequate recovery and rebuilding are being held up by red tape at FEMA and HUD.
Congress needs to act immediately to ensure a just and swift recovery for communities ravaged by climate disasters. That means a plan that puts people first, including:
- Immediate approval and decentralized distribution of aid to communities in Puerto Rico, Texas, Florida, and the US Virgin Islands;
- Immediate cancellation of Puerto Rico’s public debt & moratorium on debt payments;
- Creation of local jobs to rebuild communities and develop a more equitable and clean energy economy
I'm urging you to please take action on this today. Our communities need a just recovery now.
Thank you for your time,
