Everyone has the power to help end Puerto Rico's unequal and undemocratic current territory status. Support the Puerto Rico statehood movement to bring full democracy and equality to 3.2 million U.S. citizens in Puerto Rico. You can take action today by:
Educating, Advocating, Mobilizing and Growing the Movement!
It is our job as advocates to inform and educate others to raise awareness about the need to obtain full democracy and equality for Puerto Rico through statehood. We can achieve this by talking, sharing facts, posting, speaking, and writing. Check out some resources in the links below.
To effectively amplify the voices of the majority of voters in Puerto Rico that have already chosen statehood three times, it’s essential to advocate on their behalf directly with our members of Congress and other government officials at the state and federal levels. It is also essential to make your support for Puerto Rico statehood more visible and to document your advocacy in order to spark conversations and inspire others. Check out the resources below.
Mobilizing yourself for the Puerto Rico statehood movement is a good way to legitimize the movement and gain attention. By attending meetings and planning events you will be drawing positive attention to the movement and getting politicians to participate as well. Check out some resources in the links below.
GROW THE MOVEMENT
Every movement needs supporters. The Puerto Rico Statehood movement already has a wide variety of supporters from different backgrounds and across the political spectrum. Help the movement grow by recruiting friends, family and contacts; organizing groups; donating and fundraising; and building alliances without outside organizations.
