In Wake of Hurricane Irma, Public Pledge on Racial Diversity and Dialogue

In wake of recent WaPo expose on Trump Administration’s delayed response to Hurricane Irma recovery in Puerto Rico, it seems that U.S. federal government leadership needs to publicly re-embrace the fundamental moral principles of valuing racial diversity in America.

Because the primary way to interpret the lack of Puerto Rico emergency aid is that national Republican leaders are primarily accountable to their party leadership, primary voters in gerrymandered districts, and SuperPAC donors – as opposed to responsive and accountable management of federal government disaster management.

On our non-profit platform, we can make an effective national push to AskThem publicly:









What do experienced facilitators of racial dialogue recommend as an effective program to begin to nudge Administration officials, elected officials in states, and the GOP influencer class towards public re-engagement with intensive aid to Puerto Rican citizens?

On Nov. 18th, The Hill reported, on the state of affairs in state governments: “Republicans will control 4,170 state legislative seats after last week’s elections, while Democrats will control 3,129 seats in the nation’s 98 partisan legislative chambers. Republicans picked up a net gain of 46 seats in Tuesday’s elections, while Democrats lost 46 seats, according to the latest vote counts from The Associated Press.” Among the states, there are 34 Republicans, 15 Democrats, and 1 independent who hold the office of governor.

What conservative messengers have political capital and cultural credibility with Republican primary voters and disaffected/infrequent swing voters to publicly move towards a goal of racial understanding, and in the immediate, disaster aid to Puerto Rico ?
