1) Comedores Sociales de Puerto Rico – A 28-year-old grassroot organization that works and promotes agroecology within the food sovereignty struggle.Given that Puerto Rico imports 80% of its food, causing extreme current vulnerability to starvation, this kind of Sustainable Farming Support is vital.

2) Maria Fund – housed at the Center for Popular Democracy (CPD), and governed by organizations like Puerto Rico-based Taller Salud, the G8 of Caño Martín Peña, and other local, grassroots organizationshttp://www.mariafund.org
**About: Often looked to as the consciences of humanity, artists have a unique ability to create powerful and innovative social change. Whether through music, visual art, performance, or poetry, artists speak with integrity and the world listens.
Empowerment WORKS’ Artists in Action Event Series is a platform for artists to address critical social and environmental issues facing humanity, raise public awareness and fundraise for community-led solutions.
