Estelas de María: Panel Discussion

Last September, Puerto Rico was devastated by two hurricanes just two weeks apart: first Irma, then María. The cleanup began immediately, and soon individuals and organizations across the mainland United States were rallying to send aid to the island.

Reporter Simon Rios will moderate a panel discussion about the challenges of recovery for Puerto Rico with notable Puerto Rican community leaders including:

  • Vanessa Calderón-Rosado, CEO, Inquilinos Boricuas en Acción (IBA)
  • Jossie Valentin, Ward 4 representative on the Holyoke City Council
  • Gladys Rodriguez-Parker, Senior District Representative for Congressman James P. McGovern
  • Pedro Reina-Perez, director of Harvard Puerto Rico Winter Institute

This event is free and open to the public, but advance registration is required.
