Diaspora Summit III

Hurricane Maria caused billions of dollars in damages to Puerto Rico and left 3.4 million island residents without electric power, potable water, and telecommunications. Recovery is estimated to take years. In response to this disastrous event, the Center for Puerto Rican Studies (Centro) and the University of Puerto Rico’s School of Planning, in partnership with other educational institutions and civic organizations throughout the diaspora and Puerto Rico, launched the Rebuild Puerto Rico Initiative.

Puerto Rico, Puerto Ricans Diaspora Summit III - Rebuild Puerto Rico seeks to facilitate the connections and collaborations of Puerto Rico’s civic sector and Puerto Ricans in the Diaspora who want to join efforts to contribute to the rebuilding of Puerto Rico.
