Puerto Rico Strong is the result of many people coming together out of empathy for the devastation the island faced after Hurricane Maria. Many within the Latinx community stepped forward to share their stories, both fictional and personal, that spoke of the culture, history, and strength of the Puerto Rican community. Many who are not a part of the Latinx community stepped forward to offer their talents to support the cause. We all stand together with Puerto Rico in solidarity in the face of a destructive event to offer what is an honest, and real insight into Puerto Rican culture, and life. The good, the bad, the tragic, the powerful, it all exists within the stories Puerto Rico Strong shares with readers. We stand strong, we stand proud.
