Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Puerto Rico faces challenges on many fronts, most of which are exacerbated by the colonial relationship with the United States and the hurricanes that hit the country on 2017.

Come hear from grassroots organizers building worker owned cooperatives and emancipatory education models speak about their current challenges and hopes for the future.
