Join the National Assembly on July 14th

This event is to recruit Boricuas who live in CT who are interested in coming to the National Puerto Rican Agenda's National Assembly. The National Assembly is where our organization meets to determine the ideas and individuals who will lead our movement forward for the next 2 years. While only members in good standing can serve as voting delegates anyone can come to participate in the workshops and panels, and see how the elections work. If you are not yet an active member (i.e., you paid your fees for this year) please visit our website: https://www.puertoricanagenda.org/membership

We hope you can join us for this momentous occasion and opportunity to shape Puerto Rican Activism throughout the country for the next two years!
