Caminata por un Puerto Rico Unido ante el Cambio Climatico

On Saturday, April 30th, Puerto Rico will be mobilizing on the issue of climate change on the island. To achieve this, a climate walk is taking place in Cataño, Puerto Rico at 10 AM. El Puente is deeply involved in the issue of climate change and committed to reclaiming and preserving the environment on behalf of affected communities. El Puente launched LCAN on February 28, 2013 in support of a proactive Island-wide approach to climate change. The Camiñata represents El Puente’s efforts to unite, empower, and mobilize Puerto Rico’s communities to protect and preserve their environment in a celebration of human rights, culture, and arts.
