Solidarity with Puerto Rico
Representative Ocasio-Cortez believes that the people of Puerto Rico have the right to self-determination. For too long, Puerto Rico has suffered the political, social, and economic consequences of disenfranchisement.
In the aftermath of Hurricane Maria, Representative Ocasio-Cortez supports a Marshall Plan that centers a community-led, sustainable, and just recovery effort. Additionally, the Representative advocates for the cancellation of all of Puerto Rico’s debt, an immediate review of the Jones Act, and a repeal of the PROMESA Act.
The people of Puerto Rico must be supported in their recovery and empowered to define their future. For more information on the Puerto Rico related legislation Representative Ocasio-Cortez supports, please click here.
