The Connecticut Puerto Rican Agenda is a chapter of the National Puerto Rican Agenda, which is a national coalition formed to mobilize stateside Boricuas toward building power to suppor the movements on the island, and our struggles here in the states.
The National Puerto Rican Agenda (NPRA) is a nonpartisan alliance of stateside 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.
