Bombazo at the UC Berkeley student brigade for PR aid fundraiser

Come support the launch of a UC Berkeley student brigade of support for Puerto Rico. This is a student led project through the Public Service Center in partnership with Boricuas in Berkeley, Casa Pueblo in Adjuntas Puerto Rico and Camp Tabonuco un Jayuya Puerto Rico. It has been a year and a half since Hurricanes Maria and Irma devastated the island and the continued colonial status is equally devastating. Thousands remain without power, infrastructure is in dire need of attention and schools and services continue to close.

Our students hope to make people to people connections and join as allies with the students, community organizers and people of Puerto Rico who are not only addressing Hurricane relief, but building a new Puerto Rico from the ground up.

All funds go directly to our two Grass Roots partners in Adjuntas and Jayuya and support their ongoing work for a new Puerto Rico. Please come join us, enjoy delicious Puerto Rican food, great music with live performances and bring your check books, credit/ debit cards and an open heart, We need you!!!
