In 2017, Puerto Rico was hit with category 5 Hurricane Maria. In 2019, the island suffered a number of powerful earthquakes. Now, island residents are facing the COVID-19 pandemic. In this online program, activist and journalist Ben Ramos, Prolibertad, will provide an update on how this Caribbean island is coping with these crises. The report back will be followed by a Q & A session and cultural presentations from Boricua poets Nancy Mercado, Angel Martinez, and Rafael Landrón.
This project is part of Building Equity Project, supported by the New York Community Trust.
