Time to get to work

The Connecticut Puerto Rican Agenda is now an official state chapter of the National Puerto Rican Agenda! Well over 100 passionate Boricuas came together last Saturday to discuss the issues our community faces, and elect a team to start taking action!

We discussed how everyone can get more involved with their local community organizations and Governments, how to support the work being done on the Island, and CT specific topics like accessing healthcare and bilingual education. 
But this event wasn't all talk, we also elected a leadership team ready willing and able to move our agenda forward. This board will create our organizational structure over the next month and begin mobilizing events in your neighborhood starting this fall. If you would like to get more involved please contact any of the members below for more information.
