If you need help finding your Senators, you can ask the Capitol Switchboard attendant by telling them in what state you reside or use this link.

Once you are connected, ask to leave a time-sensitive message for your Senator.

"Thank you for taking my call. I live in your state, my name and address is______________. The Build Back Better Act contains provisions that will help Puerto Rico recover from debt, disasters and COVID crises and tackle a nearly 60% child poverty rate. I want the Senator to promote recovery and opportunity for the people of the island by:

1.) Supporting Supplemental Security Income payments and child tax credits that could benefit more than 300,000 low-income people; 

2.) Fully funding a permanent expansion of the healthcare Medicaid program; 

3.) Passing measures to increase manufacturing jobs in Puerto Rico."
