Hurricane Maria has left many of our fellow Americans - 3.4 million Puerto Rican residents - without shelter, power, cell service, drinking water, and adequate food. The hurricane wiped out the island’s power grid completely, and officials report that several Puerto Rican communities are still without power, a year later. September 21st, marks the 1 year anniversary of Hurricane Maria. The latest death toll estimate is close to 5,000, many of them from delayed medical care. Hear from voices on the ground shed light on the economical, educational, environmental and health devastation facing our fellow citizens.Come learn how you can help support the efforts! Together we will find ways to help create a just recovery and rebuild Puerto Rico.
