Today’s Action: Take action to help Hurricane Fiona victims in Puerto Rico!

Over 80% of Puerto Rico still lacks power, days after Hurricane Fiona made landfall and pummeled the island with more than 30 inches of rain. The full scope of the damage is massive and still coming into focus — widespread mudslides and flooding have washed away bridges, ripped pavement from roads, and left millions of Puerto Ricans without clean drinking water. Fiona arrived on the fifth anniversary of Hurricane Maria, a catastrophic flooding event many parts of the island still haven’t recovered from. Puerto Rico’s infrastructure, already lacking from decades of neglect from the US government, was compromised even further by Fiona’s devastating landfall.

Puerto Rico needs aid now. We cannot allow Puerto Ricans to wait another five years for crucial infrastructure to be rebuilt in their communities following yet another natural disaster — especially not when America claims their land as US territory. It is our moral duty and obligation to contribute to their recovery.

Trusted local organizations in Puerto Rico need donations now more than ever. If you have the means, check out this Twitter thread of mutual aid and community-led groups doing the hard work and make your donation today. Every second matters, and every dollar counts!
