Thanks to your support and partnership, we won our campaign for emergency food and housing assistance for people recovering from hurricane destruction in Puerto Rico.
Your support, e-mails and calls to Congress moved forward more than $8 billion in debt relief and disaster aid for Puerto Rico and billions more for Americans wrestling with disasters from California to Minnesota and Texas to Florida.
Please join me and make a donation to Jubilee USA Network today so we can keep on winning. For the next week, your tax-deductible gift will be doubled.
Your gift means:
- We can move forward debt and disaster relief for Puerto Rico. Already your efforts won $50 billion in aid and moved forward a super bankruptcy process for the island. Your gift means we can work to make sure debt relief means stopping austerity policies and winning the $70 billion in recovery aid Puerto Rico still needs.
- Congress just introduced our legislation to combat financial secrecy and anonymous shell corporations. This type of "Panama Papers" secrecy facilitates the theft of debt relief aid, human trafficking and contributes to the loss of more than a trillion dollars of revenue in the developing world. With your support, we can get this legislation signed into law in the next year.
- Working together, we moved the White House on eliminating harmful provisions in trade agreements that favor predatory debt collecting hedge funds and abusive corporations. Now as negotiations continue on a new NAFTA, your support means we can push for access to medicines for vulnerable populations and all who need life saving medicines.
- When you make a contribution to Jubilee USA now, you further our efforts to address student debt and payday lending. Working together, we ensured certain types of student loans had low interest rates. When you donate to Jubilee USA now, it means our bipartisan work can build bridges to protect students and consumers.
Summer is the most difficult time for fundraising and for us to sustain our work.
Your contributions are needed and so appreciated as we work to move the White House, Congress, the G20 and the IMF during these hot summer months.
