After back-to-back hurricanes, fellow Americans are in immediate, desperate need of federal diaster relief. Senator Elizabeth Warren and other Democratic leaders have signed a letter calling for an immediate appropriations bill to provide for relief in Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Let’s give their request a signal boost! Make some noise on the phones and ask the House and Senate to immediately pass a spending bill. Suggested script below:
Hi, I’m [NAME], a constituent from [CITY, ZIP]. I’m extremely concerned about my fellow Americans in Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. I’m calling to ask Senator/Representative [NAME] to answer Senator Elizabeth Warren’s call to consider an immediate appropriations bill to provide disaster relief. We need to make sure we provide adequately for a FEMA Disaster Relief Fund as well as Community Block Grants for disaster recovery! We can’t continue to let more than 3.5 million Americans suffer in apocalyptic conditions, without water, food, medical treatment, and power. Thanks for taking my call.
