For over one hundred and twenty years, the U.S. citizens of Puerto Rico have lived under the American flag, and now for more than 100 years we have shared the sacred bond of citizenship with our fellow citizens in the states. However, the lack of full participation in the federal government that makes and executes the laws that Puerto Rico lives under, and the ability of the U.S. Congress to treat Puerto Rico unequally under those laws has proven a fundamental limitation on the fulfillment of the full potential of our

We truly believe that with the equal rights and equal responsibilities that only statehood can offer our island’s citizens, we can not only transform Puerto Rico into a vibrant and prosperous jurisdiction, but also continue contributing to America’s progress and prosperity both at the national level and as the leader of the free world. This is the unfinished business of American democracy, and through sustained effort we will make America a more perfect Union.
