Centro Publications/Centro Press enables us to engage in robust participation in the fields of Puerto Rican, Latino, and American Studies. By taking advantage of our vast archival resources and connections in the Puerto Rican community, we disseminate crucial information about the Puerto Rican experience and contribution to the political, economic, and social cultures of the United States.
