Project Puerto Rico

It Didn’t Start with Maria

On September 21, 2017, a devastating hurricane hit the islands of Puerto Rico. Hurricane Maria brought not only high winds, rain, and extensive damage, but in the days and months that have followed, this natural disaster exposed an unnatural one: the long-term and on-going effects of Puerto Rico’s political and economic status.

 

The current situation in Puerto Rico didn’t start with Maria.
The death of 2,975 Puerto Ricans* is the result of climate change, colonization and capitalism.

 

By attending a Project Puerto Rico event in one of 16 cities across the mainland US in 2019, you’ll have the chance to:

  • Learn about the current and historical colonial status of Puerto Rico

  • Heal from the impacts of colonization on us all (including colonizers)

  • Take specific actions that support a more autonomous Puerto Rico

  • Excite allies to establish a Puerto Rican Solidarity Network

Your commitment could be as little as two hours of your time and $20. Your impact could be immeasurable. Won’t you join us?

*At least four university studies have attempted to determine the death toll in Puerto Rico in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria. These studies estimate between 1,100 and 4,600 people were killed. The truth is we’ll never know the actual count.
