Last week, Defend PR launched a new campaign that in their words will “amplify the voices of everyday Puerto Ricans working to build a new Puerto Rico where its land, people and culture flourish. By using a people-centered approach to storytelling and the dissemination of personal and community narratives, Defend PR hopes to capture the remarkable resilience and creativity of the Puerto Rican people as they navigate the current economic and fiscal crisis. Defend PR will share stories of resistance and renewal in all areas of Puerto Rican society and cultural life, highlighting everything from agriculture and cultural production, to grassroots political mobilization and global solidarity networks.” It also “seeks to deepen connections between Puerto Ricans on the island and throughout the diaspora, in the hopes of nurturing greater solidarity, collaboration, and kinship.” For more about the campaign, please visit its main site.
