Last year I was able to attend a press conference at the Puerto Rican Cultural Center in Chicago about Hurricane Maria relief efforts. One of the main speakers was Lin-Manuel Miranda.
I'm so excited to see this article in print. The hurricane did tremendous damage to the island. Now, nine months later, some of the island is still without power. There are ways to help, even if you don't have means to do so financially. One of the best ways to support relief efforts is to make sure your representatives know you care about the people of Puerto Rico and make sure they care too.
