Anticolonial Struggles: Puerto Rico and Palestine Fight for Freedom

Join Boricuas Unidos en la Diáspora and the Inter-Faith Committee on Latin America for a panel exploring the intersections of the Puerto Rican and Palestinian struggles for independence and anti-colonialism. Featuring:

  • Dr. Margaret Power: Historian and author of "Solidarity Across the Americas: The Puerto Rican Nationalist Party vs. U.S. Colonialism"
  • Daniela Velázquez: St. Louis City's first-even Latina elected official and our very own Puerto Rican Alderwoman, serving the city's 6th Ward
  • Dr. Sara Awartani: Historian and author of "Solidarities of Liberation, Visions of Empire: Puerto Rico, Palestine, and American Global power"

This event will be immediately followed by a 'Jangueo' Boricua at Salsa Rosada restaurant—an opportunity to keep connecting with the panelists, build community, and support our work. Learn more and RSVP for that here.
