Climate Refugees Vote

In the aftermath of Hurricane Maria, 3.4 million American citizens were left without food, water or electricity in Puerto Rico. The disastrous impacts of Hurricane Maria have been worsened by a disastrous response by the federal government. We’re harnessing our collective power to support Puerto Ricans displaced by Hurricane Maria, and to unite coastal communities of color suffering the impacts of climate change, to vote in the upcoming election.

UNTIL ELECTION DAY

This election, let’s turn the tide on climate action and demand a just recovery for Puerto Rico.

In the face of rising sea levels and extreme weather events, communities of color, coastal, and island communities are on the frontlines of climate change. This Administration has turned its back on Puerto Rico while continuing to deny climate change. Together, we can ensure that climate refugees have a voice in our democracy this November.



What’s At Stake in Florida?

There’s an amendment on the ballot that would reinstate voting rights to more than a million Florida residents with criminal records who cannot vote right now even though they’ve served their time.

There is a race for a new governor.
The current governor refuses to acknowledge climate change and has banned the use of the term.

The current governor’s office oversees redistricting; the process of redrawing legislative districts which can unfairly sway the outcome of an election.

There is an open House and Senate seat as well as numerous important local elections that could give our underserved communities a voice.

    Since Hurricane Maria slammed Puerto Rico in September 2017, tens of thousands of people have been forced to leave the island due to the destruction of homes, loss of jobs, and lack of access to clean water and reliable healthcare. They are now residing in mainland U.S., mostly in Florida.


    Puerto Rico is a U.S. territory, which means that even though residents are US citizens, they cannot vote in certain races, and have a limited role in the Presidential election. Now, just by living stateside, Puerto Ricans will be able to vote in every race on the ballot, shaping Congressional outcomes, the race for Governor, and more.
