The National Puerto Rican Coalition, Inc. (NPRC) is the premier non-profit non-partisan Hispanic organization representing the voice of the Puerto Rican community. NPRC is committed to enhancing the social and economic well-being of Puerto Ricans through policy development, research, advocacy, civic engagement, and education.

The National Institute for Latino Policy (NiLP) is a nonpartisan center established in 1982 in New York City, originally as the Institute for Puerto Rican Policy (IPR). NiLP provides a unique approach and voice to the policy analysis and advocacy needs of the Latino community in the United States. Originally focused on the Puerto Rican community, our work has grown organically to include all Latinos and has gone from a local to a national focus.

The Institute’s approach includes:
  • Focusing on the intersectionality of Latino policy issues.
  • The use of action-research as an organizing tool for advocacy.
  • A strategy that focuses on the development of local and state level strategies as the basis for national policy analysis and organizing.
  • The creative and aggressive use of the internet and the media as community education and organizing tools.
An emphasis on working in critical policy areas that are underdeveloped or not addressed in the Latino community.


The New York Women’s Foundation creates an equitable and just future for women and families by uniting a cross-cultural alliance that ignites action and invests in bold, community-led solutions across the city.

The Campaign Finance Board is a nonpartisan, independent city agency that empowers New Yorkers to make a greater impact on their elections.

The New York City Campaign Finance Board (CFB) administers one of the strongest, most effective campaign finance systems in the country. NYC’s matching funds program amplifies the voice of average New Yorkers in city elections by matching their small contributions with public funds. By increasing the value of small-dollar contributions, the program reduces the possibility and perception of corruption from large contributions and unlimited campaign spending, and encourages citizens from all walks of life to run for office. Through its rigorous oversight and enforcement efforts, the CFB holds candidates accountable for using public funds responsibly.

These soldiers, known as the “Borinqueneers,” answered the nation’s call to serve at a time when the military was still segregated. They were the largest, longest standing and only active duty segregated Latino military unit in U.S. history.



Just click the logo of Puerto Rico Limpio to be brought to their website.


Puerto Rico faces a landfill crisis. Instead of safe, law-abiding municipal landfills, we have mountains of toxic trash that is threatening our communities in every part of our country. For this reason, we have launched PUERTO RICO LIMPIO to expose the truth about the landfills in our communities, to denounce the violations we citizens know about, to educate the public about the threat that non-compliant landfills post to our health and safety, and to demand action.


We are a multi-sectoral group of citizens, from different municipalities and regions of Puerto Rico, who have started PUERTO RICO LIMPIO on the internet to call on citizens from every community to act as whistle blowers about toxic, dangerous landfills in your community.

Share with us your denunciations, your concerns, and add your voice to our demand for action. You can find useful information here about what to look for, how it is dangerous, how it breaks the local and federal rules, and what we can do together to fight for a cleaner and safer Puerto Rico.
