UNIDOS PA’PR – Hurricane Relief Efforts   Recently updated !


Taller Puertorriqueño has joined forces with a coalition of community organizations, community leaders, and advocates to raise funds to support storm-ravaged Puerto Rico under the title UNIDOSPA’PR. Together, we want to do everything possible to draw attention to the crisis and support Puerto Rico in the relief efforts in the aftermath of hurricane María. Right now in Puerto Rico, over 3.5 million Americans are without electricity and running water and thousands of people are in shelters.

Because of the deep connections between Puerto Ricans on the island and Puerto Ricans on the mainland, every Puerto Rican in Philadelphia has been impacted by the effects of hurricanes Irma and María. The effects of these storms, on top of the current economic situation in Puerto Rico, highlights the need for immediate assistance. The road to recovery will be long and costly. Help us to send a strong message of love, solidarity, and support to the people of Puerto Rico. Donate now!

El Taller Puertorriqueño se une a una coalición de líderes y organizaciones comunitarias, para recaudar fondos para apoyar a Puerto Rico, con una campaña bajo el nombre UNIDOSPA’PR. Unidos con un propósito común, queremos hacer todo lo posible para llamar la atención a la crisis y apoyar a Puerto Rico con los esfuerzos humanitarios necesarios luego del desastre. Ahora mismo, más de 3.5 miliones de ciudadanos americanos permanecen sin luz o agua, y miles de personas están alojados en refugios.

Los vínculos son profundos entre los puertorriqueños en la isla y el continente, y cada uno de ellos ha sido impactado por el efecto de los huracanes Irma y María. Sus efectos, junto con la crisis económica que está sufriendo Puerto Rico actualmente, resaltan la necesidad de asistencia inmediata. El camino hacia la recuperación será largo y costoso. Ayuden a mandar un mensaje fuerte de amor, solidaridad, y apoyo a la gente boricua. Donen ahora!

RELIEF FUND FOR ARTISTS

New York-based Pregones Theater/Puerto Rican Traveling Theater has launched the Hurricane María Relief Drive for Artists, which will provide $500 micro-grants to theater, music, dance, visual and literary arts practitioners in Puerto Rico. The drive will put emergency cash in the hands of artists with whom Pregones/PRTT has a history of exchange and collaboration, and who are also invited to identify subsequent micro-grant recipients. This is a peer-to-peer artist relief drive, with no intermediary delivery costs. 100% of money raised will be transferred by electronic wire to recipients in Puerto Rico.
