The great efforts of Puerto Ricans towards the reconstruction and rebuilding of Puerto Rico have not ceased. Two years since Hurricane Maria, there is still much work to be done. Puerto Rican Voices’ fourth season— “Rebuild Puerto Rico”— shows these efforts to connect the Puerto Rican diaspora with organizations in Puerto Rico.
The panel will be composed by experienced community leaders of the Diaspora in New York City who are involved in these efforts to rebuild Puerto Rico.
