U.S. Policy is Harming Puerto Rico: Break the Silence!

Thomas Paine Plaza, Philadelphia 1401 John F Kennedy Blvd.

Join us, Diaspora In Action and Voces Del Barrio, on Friday, Sept 29th at City Hall/Thomas Paine Plaza for a rally to demand that the President, decision makers in Washington DC, and FEMA help the people of Puerto Rico and supply the hurricane relief that is desperately needed NOW.

The recent hurricanes have devastated the island of Puerto Rico, but despite the vast wealth and resources of this country, the US is withholding aid to the Puerto Rican people due to bureaucracy, the antiquated Jones Act, and racism.
