Nuestras Historias

News & Updates from Nuestras Raíces @RILA

To Rhode Island from Puerto Rico | Hurricane María

Marta w Maria Rivera (interview)

History is not about the ancient past, or even about what took place 10 years ago.

History happens every day. With that thought in mind, we will be collecting the stories of the Puerto Rican community in Rhode Island, focusing on those who have made this state their home due to their displacement in PuertoRico during Hurricane María.

We feel it’s important to capture these personal stories and to educate and raise social awareness among our youth, so that this event will never be forgotten. If you are interested in collecting these stories with us, contact Marta V. Martínez.

If you know anyone who would like to tell their story, please leave a message below or contact
Marta by email so we can set up an interview date/time.
