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.
