Join us for an evening discussing activism on the part of the Puerto Rican diaspora with our panelists Iris Morales (author, educator, filmmaker and activist member of the Young Lords), Edgardo Miranda-Rodríguez (writer and creator of La Borinqueña superhero comic book) and Carmen Rivera (playwright and author of La Gringa). We will be focusing on the topic of hurricane relief efforts in particular but pre-hurricane activism will also be discussed.
There will be a reception following the panel discussion.
