Puerto Rico’s Crisis and the SFL Puerto Rican Diaspora: A Conversation

Conversatorio FB Invite FINAL
The National Puerto Rican Agenda (SFL Chapter) –  a nonpartisan alliance of stateside national and local organizations, elected and community leaders, and volunteers – invites you to a Dialogue (‘Conversatorio’) about the humanitarian and fiscal crisis affecting Puerto Rico and the impact on the Puerto Rican Diaspora Community in South Florida.
Melissa Mark-Viverito, Speaker of the New York City Council and Edwin Melendez, Director of the Center for Puerto Rican Studies at Hunter College will be the keynote speakers in an insightful discussion about how the national Puerto Rican diaspora has been uniting to advocate for Puerto Rico during the fiscal and humanitarian crisis. The ‘conversatorio’ will give an opportunity to understand the roots of the SFL diaspora as well as how it is being affected by the crisis on the island.
We are honored to have Maurice Ferre, six-term Mayor of the City of Miami joining as a speaker at the Albizu University event on Wednesday, June 22nd.
The National Puerto Rican Agenda (NPRA) is a nonpartisan alliance of national and local organizations, elected and community leaders, and volunteers. The alliance was born out of a collective desire to address Puerto Rico’s economic crisis and promote Puerto Rican political and civic participation in the United States. The ultimate purpose of the NPRA is to unite, educate, and create solutions for the Puerto Rican people in the United States and Puerto Rico. Twitter: @PRicanAgenda
