La Alianza por la Justicia en Puerto Rico

En abril 2018, tuve el privilegio de viajar a San Juan, Puerto Rico para ofrecer capacitación y asistencia técnica en español a organizaciones puertorriqueñas sin fines de lucro. El Instituto del Desarrollo de la Juventud invitó a la Alianza por la Justicia a ofrecer un entrenamiento sobre los derechos (y deberes) de las organizaciones sin fines de lucro de tener impacto en la política pública.

Bolder Advocacy in Puerto Rico

In April 2018, I had the privilege of traveling to San Juan, Puerto Rico to provide training and technical assistance in Spanish to Puerto Rican nonprofit organizations.  El Instituto del Desarrollo de la Juventud (the Youth Development Institute of Puerto Rico) invited Alliance for Justice’s Bolder Advocacy to offer a workshop about the rights (and responsibilities) of nonprofit organizations to impact public policy. El Instituto had organized this event as part of the debut of their Children’s Budget, which analyzes the impact of Puerto Rican and Federal budget cuts on the island’s youth and families. After the training, I provided in-depth technical assistance sessions to both groups considering starting a nonprofit, as well as savvy organizations like Espacios Abiertos (Open Spaces).
