For Democrats

Dear Rep. XXXX,

On Wednesday, June 16th there’s another Natural Resources Committee hearing on Puerto Rico’s colonial status. I’m writing to you as a Puerto Rican and your constituent to urge you to attend this hearing and support the Puerto Rico Self Determination Act. It is important that Congress takes action on Puerto Rico after 123 years of colonialism.

Your presence and the questions you ask in support of Puerto Rico and PRSDA will help the Committee understand why Reps. Nydia Velazquez and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s bill is the right path forward to put Puerto Ricans in the driver’s seat of their own future.

If you prefer not to ask questions, please yield your time to either Reps. Velazquez or Ocasio-Cortez.

For Republicans

Dear Rep. XXXX,

On Wednesday, June 16th there’s another Natural Resources Committee hearing on Puerto Rico’s colonial status. I’m writing to you as a Puerto Rican and your constituent to urge you to attend this hearing and support the Puerto Rico Self Determination Act (H.R. 2070). It is important that Congress takes action on Puerto Rico after 123 years of colonialism.

The Puerto Rico Self-Determination Act is the right process to tackle this complex issue that resides at the core of America’s democratic legacy, something that your colleague’s statehood bill, H.R. 1522, does not do as it leaves behind other alternatives.
