Join us on Wednesday, March 16th, 2022 at 6:30 PM EST for a Town Hall – Reclaiming Puerto Rico. This town hall brings various young people fighting for social justice across the Puerto Rican archipelago to express the impact that years of colonialism and austerity have had on their lives and the lives of their fellow Puerto Ricans. The forum will touch on topics from the fight for fair wages, public access to the beaches, and food sovereignty. In addition, it will link these struggles with the right that Puerto Ricans have to a binding decolonization process that is open, democratic, and transparent.
This event will be recorded and broadcast live on Wednesday, March 16 at 6:30 pm (AST) on the digital media of the organizing entities: VAMOS Puerto Rico, Center for Popular Democracy, School of Political and Community Leadership, La Clara, and Open Society Policy Center.
