The Connecticut Puerto Rican Agenda is proud to announce we are officially endorsing the National Unity March for Puerto Rico on Sunday, November 19th. The offensive actions of this administration have made it abundantly clear that we, a united Boricua community, must bring the power of our collective voice directly to Congress to get our Island the assistance it deserves. On Nov 19th the Puerto Rican Diaspora will gather together and demand that Congress take action to support the recovery of Puerto Rico!
You can find march details here: https://www.unitymarchforpuertorico.com/
“The mission of Unity March for Puerto Rico is to stand in solidarity - ONE people - ONE voice- against unjust laws that have been systematically oppressive and crippling to the people of Puerto Rico and the socio-economic growth and sustainability of the island. We are asking that our leaders ACT NOW and make the necessary legislative changes to the Jones Act to uplift the people of Puerto Rico and hearten, support and sustain the economic growth of the island.”
