7:00pm [7:00pm] “Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria”
Description:
ROCLA​*​ presents: Betsy Colón and Mike Wall, Livingston CARES and Aurora Santiago-Ortiz, J.D., University of Massachusetts “Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria” Wednesday, May 2, 2018, 7 PM Downtown Presbyterian Church 121 North Fitzhugh Street, Rochester The program is free and open to the public. Wheelchair-accessible and looped for the hearing impaired. What is life like in Puerto Rico after the hurricane? And how has the United States government contributed - both historically and today - to the devastation in Puerto Rico? Please join us for a conversation with two volunteers - Betsy Colón and Mike Wall - who recently completed a humanitarian project in Puerto Rico. Learn more about their work and how you can help their organization, Livingston CARES, continue to support recovery on the island. In addition, Aurora Santiago-Ortiz will join us virtually to share her perspectives on the geopolitical situation of Puerto Rico. Santiago-Ortiz will discuss how the United States government’s paternalistic relationship with the island made it particularly vulnerable to natural disaster. *Rochester Committee on Latin America​
