Jubilee Act Sample Talking Points

Call your representative about the Jubilee Act

  • Hello! My name is Jessica Jones and I am from Houston, Texas. I am a constituent of Representative XXX.
  • I am calling to ask Representative XXX to co-sponsor the Jubilee Act or H.R. 1130.
  • The Jubilee Act would require the U.S. Treasury Department to work in all appropriate settings to achieve 100 percent cancellation of the debts of 50 nations by international financial institutions.
  • Complete debt cancellation is needed for the fight against HIV/AIDS in Africa. Currently half of all African countries spend more on debt service than on health care.
  • Debt relief works! After the limited amount of debt cancellation given so far, Uganda has doubled its school enrollment and Mozambique has vaccinated 500,000 children.
