3.5 million Americans are impacted by Puerto Rico's economic and humanitarian crisis. Jubilee USA is raising awareness and promoting solutions.
In Texas, we aired spots on 125 radio stations and in 87 markets encouraging presidential candidates to commit to resolve the island's debt crisis. We placed our Puerto Rico spots in 238 stations across the battleground state of Florida.
How you can get involved:
Sign our petition calling on Congress and the Federal Reserve to resolve Puerto Rico's economic and humanitarian crisis.
Keep our campaign going - donate to keep our ads on the air beyond Florida in critical primary states. For every $250 we can raise, 35,000 people will hear our radio spot. Donate now so we can place radio spots across the US.
Share our Puerto Rico Radio Spot with the hashtag #PuertoRico
