A Year After Maria: Current and Future Challenges in Puerto Rico
Posted by Rutgers University on September 17, 2018
PUERTO RICO: ENERGY, EDUCATION, HEALTH & ECONOMY
The Community Leadership Center Hispanic Heritage Month symposium marks one year following Hurricane Maria that devastated Puerto Rico and triggered a critical process to identify new methods to reconstruct and revitalize communities and people’s lives. Speakers will discuss how to re-imagine, re-invent, re-shape, and re-think Puerto Rico around the issues of education, health, energy, and the economy in this critical time to improve the island’s security and safety. The event will also coincide with a special book signing with Judge Nelson A. Diaz on his upcoming memoir, Not from Here, Not from There/No Soy de Aqui ni de Alla, published by Temple University Press.
