This teach-in, the first in a series of public events organized by the Mellon funded Bridging the Divides Decolonization Study Group, asks our community to think about the lessons we have learned in the 5 years since Hurricane María made landfall in Puerto Rico and how those lessons can be applied in light of Hurricane Fiona hitting the archipelago earlier this month. Joining us to kick start this conversation are:

  • Yarimar Bonilla, CENTRO Directora
  • Jennifer Hinojosa, CENTRO Director of Research
