RESPOND: Puerto Rico is an ecological and sustainable effort by local North Texas Artists of Puerto Rican heritage and otherwise, to provide the people of Puerto Rico options that will last well beyond the current relief efforts to maintain their day-to-day needs. The efforts to rebuild Puerto Rico will last decades. Sustainable long-term solutions are urgently needed. Our fundraising efforts respond to the need to rise from this disaster as well as to contribute to a new type of development based on local resilience and alternative ways of living in accordance with the ecology of the island and the world. Our fund will go directly to community-led and artist-led organizations that have established deep roots on the island before the storm and will continue to be there long after the short-term relief efforts have disappeared.
