All profitswill go to towards disaster relief and recovery programs to support PuertoRico. Despite being a US territory, Puerto Rico is oftenthought of as a foreign land, if it's even a thought in the mind of the averageAmerican at all. Its people exist in all corners of America; some of them haveparents who immigrated from the home island, others are a part of families thathave been on the mainland for generations. Then there are those who have come tothe states in search of a dream but struggle to integrate into an unfamiliarculture, while there are those who have lived in the United States all of theirlives but still have the same struggle because of the color of their skin ortheir sexual identity. These stories follow individuals from diverse walks oflife but are all part of the culture that is Puerto Rico. Puerto Rico Strong features art and writing by RosaColon, Vita Ayala, Naomi Franquiz, Javier Cruz Winnik, Sabrina Cintron, RonnieGarcia, Fabian Nicieza, Joamette Gil, and many more!
