We need you to reach out to your representative! Ask them to support exemption of the Jones Act in Puerto Rico. Find your representative with the link below and call them. If you want an idea of what to say, use the template below

Template:

FOR EMAIL- Emails usually get a response from Members

'Hi, my name is [NAME], I'm a constituent living in [CITY/TOWN] and my zip code is [ZIP CODE #].

Last week, Hurricane María made a direct hit on Puerto Rico leaving a path of destruction in its wake. The island has faced a decade-long economic crisis, making recovery efforts more difficult.

I write to urge [CONGRESS MEMBER] support efforts to permanently exempt Puerto Rico from the Jones Act proposed by Senators John McCain and Mike Lee. These efforts will provide an opportunity for 3.5 million U.S. Citizens in the island to recover and rebuild after Hurricane María. It would also stimulate long-term economic relief for the island.

Will [CONGRESS MEMBER] do everything [HE/SHE] can to assist Puerto Rico? Will [HE/SHE] commit, publicly to do so?

Template

FOR PHONE CALLS- Short and sweet! (Staffers who have to record calls in systems appreciate brevity when phones are ringing non-stop)

'Hi, my name is [NAME], I'm a constituent living in [CITY/TOWN] and my zip code is [ZIP CODE #].

I call to urge [CONGRESS MEMBER] support Senators McCain and Lee in their efforts to permanently exempt Puerto Rico from the Jones Act.

Thanks!’
