Dear fellow statehooders:
I cordially extend season’s greetings to all of you and wish you a happy and prosperous New Year 2008! The dawn of the New Year presents numerous challenges for PRSSA and the Puerto Rican statehood movement as we strive to make Puerto Rico the 51st star of the American constellation of states.
PRSSA faces a decisive election year in which we will work to elect a pro-statehood government for Puerto Rico in November 2008. In that regard, we wage an absentee voting campaign to secure that victory at the polls. Our campaign helps students get registered as voters by the Puerto Rico Elections Committee and aids those students in requesting and sending their absentee ballots. Each vote we acquire in the name of statehood leads us one step closer to our most cherished objective: Statehood for Puerto Rico.
PRSSA is also waging a multi-pronged web campaign to promote statehood and absentee voting, and to establish a nationwide network of pro-statehood students. PRSSA’s official group in Facebook is the largest of its kind and it is an excellent destination for all statehooders to meet and greet. PRSSA’s Facebook group may be found at http://facebook.com/group.php?gid=2205015266. PRSSA can also be found in MySpace (http://groups.myspace.com/prstatehood) and YouTube (http://www.youtube.com/PRSSA).
If you have not done so already, be sure to apply for PRSSA membership through the following link: http://www.prssa.we.bs/memberapp.html. By applying you will be able to receive important information and updates regarding PRSSA’s activities in 2008, including our absentee voting campaign. Join today and help secure a prosperous future for Puerto Rico!
2008 will be a pivotal year for the Puerto Rican statehood movement and PRSSA will be at the forefront of the campaigns that lie ahead. The future of our generation is in our hands and the Puerto Rican youth, represented by this organization, will make its voice heard loud and clear. Join us as we endeavor to make Puerto Rico the 51st state of the Union. God bless and best wishes for 2008!
