Diaspora Despierta
Reflecting on Recovery & Resistance

20 September 2022

Five years after Hurricane María devastated the island of Puerto Rico, the island continues to suffer from broken promises and corrupt policies. But this has not halted the movement. Residents continue to advocate for and work towards just recovery.

This event celebrates the power of community driven change and highlights what is possible when communities identify their own priorities and work together to develop solutions.

The documentary We Still Here follows the journey of a group of young people in the pueblo of Comerio as they come together to rebuild their community and travel to the halls of Congress in the fight for a just recovery. Join Puerto Ricans from the Diaspora to support community led solutions and self-determination.
