Boricua ¡Hazte Sentir!

#BoricuaHazteSentir

A voter registration and civic engagement campaign for Puerto Ricans and allies in NYC.

Puerto Rico is going through an economic, social, and political crisis that is making thousands of Puerto Ricans to flee stateside in search of better opportunities. At the same time, for decades, New York City has been home for thousands of Puerto Ricans that have overcome and still go through many obstacles in search of greater opportunities. These two situations significantly impact our communities and need to be seen jointly.

We need to think about the Puerto Rican community in Puerto Rico and stateside United States as one. The Puerto Rican community has the opportunity to empower itself through activism and participation to achieve self-sufficiency. This is the purpose of Boricua ¡Hazte Sentir! That looks to engage the Puerto Rican community through civic engagement for the benefit of Puerto Rico and the Puerto Rican community in NYC.
