90 days since Hurricane Maria and Puerto Rico is still in the dark

By Newsroom America Feeds at 16 Dec 2017

Dear Miriam,

Next week will mark 90 days since Hurricane Maria struck Puerto Rico, leaving almost the entire island without power. While recovery is underway and conditions on the ground are slowly improving, many residents of the island still lack reliable electric power and access to safe drinking water.

This level of inaction is unjust, which is why we're joining together with partners like Green Latinos, the Hispanic Federation, and others for a day of action on December 20th.


Join us for an interactive webinar with youth leaders from Puerto Rico, followed by a moment of darkness as we turn off our lights in solidarity with the people of Puerto Rico who are still without power.


WHAT: Puerto Rico Day of Action, including webinar and solidarity action WHEN: December 20, 2017 4 - 5:30 PM ET WHERE: http://click.emails.sierraclub.org/?qs=8d00ded0d3714b0ac70462986e272de375a3e3cf9230cdbfcc4fe83a30298ca7aaf8520f35caaf4e2a29208e8c1aa093f0206cf9bbac3264

The story of injustice in Puerto Rico did not begin when Maria made landfall on Sept 20th, nor will it end after Puerto Rico’s infrastructure is rebuilt. In our webinar, Puerto Rican youth leaders will share personal stories from the hurricane, offer a crash course in Puerto Rican political history, and demonstrate how you can take action for justice right now as Congress considers supplemental funding for Puerto Rican recovery. Following the webinar we will join in a moment of darkness by turning off our lights.

We hope you can join us!

Thank you,

Amira Odeh Sierra Student Coalition
