Our Story and Goals
Puerto Ricans in Action formed in 2016 during protests against U.S. Senate Bill 2328, PROMESA. Our goals quickly then became to unify our community, make us locally and nationally visible, and establish a Puerto Rican Cultural Resource Center. We strive to be the central organizers in the Los Angeles region for our community.
A fiscally sponsored 501c(3), PRiA's mission is to ensure the vibrant future of the Puerto Rican people by strengthening Puerto Rican identity, communities, and connection with Puerto Rico. Our goals are to be the central organizer for the Puerto Rican community in Los Angeles and to ensure everyone on the island has access to clean drinking water.
