After hurricane María devastated Puerto Rico the neglect of the US and Puerto Rico’s governments has left the Island in a dire state, with a confirmed death toll of over 2,965 people on top of a $73 billion debt. The Fiscal Control Board and the government have been playing with the livelihood of the most vulnerable Puerto Ricans by closing schools and basic services. This is outrageous. From Puerto Rico to New York, Boston, Phoenix, Orlando and Chicago, people are standing up for the dignity of Puerto Ricans.

Join us for this national day of action on the anniversary of the hurricane to demonstrate our indignation on the Federal Plaza on 230 S. Dearborn St. on September 20th at 5:00 PM. We will rally and march to call out these abuses and say #DecolonizePR#YoNoComoAusteridad#ConstruyamosOtraVida#LaQuieroPublica#SeAcabaronLasPromesas
