Houston Needs Your Help

Houston needs your help. This will only take a few minutes and requires no money. Please call your member of congress. Below is a link to contact information for the House of Representatives and the Senate.

President Trump sent a request to Congress for $7.9 billion for FEMA for disaster aid, which he says is a down payment. I’ve been volunteering at one of the large shelters every day for the past week, and I can tell you that $7.9 billion may sound like a lot of money, but we’re going to need 20 times that. There are tens of thousands of Houstonians who lost everything – their homes are unsafe, their cars are destroyed and their belongings are ruined. We have whole neighborhoods still under water. Once thriving businesses are now unable to operate.

Texans are scrappy. We’re hard workers. We’re ready to get back to business as usual. And we need help. Please call your member of Congress and ask them to support the initial aid package, and to demand that the next payment needs to be well over $100 billion and it needs to be soon.
