Bridging Change-Makers together to Unite, Educate and create solutions for the Puerto Rican people
The National Puerto Rican Agenda (NPRA) was created as a nonpartisan alliance of stateside organizations, elected officials, community leaders, and citizen volunteers. Born out of a collective desire to strengthen our capacity and elevate our impact in addressing Puerto Rico’s extended economic crisis and promoting Puerto Rican political and civic participation in Puerto Rico and the United States, NPRA brings together a rich tapestry of advocacy efforts at the national, state, and local levels.
Our vision is a world where island-based and state-side Puerto Ricans are engaged and empowered to pursue public policies that provide an equitable and sustainable future where our communities can heal, grow, and thrive. We believe that providing a forum that brings together diverse stakeholders and bridges collaborative initiatives, we can accomplish a common goal – improving the lives of Puerto Ricans everywhere.
To get there, we must organize our public policy advocacy efforts, in the diaspora and on the island, in support of legislation and policies that remove the barriers of economic, educational, and healthcare inequities.
The mission of the National Puerto Rican Agenda is to unite, educate, and create solutions for the Puerto Rican people in the United States and Puerto Rico. We seek to work with the government, candidates, political parties, organizations, and, most importantly, the public to make the mission of this organization a reality.
Alongside our mission to unite, educate, and create solutions for the Puerto Rican people in the United States and Puerto Rico, the National Puerto Rican Agenda has taken up an ambitious agenda on central issues concerning Puerto Ricans in the United States and Puerto Rico.
On July 24, 2016, at the First Constituent Assembly in Camden, New Jersey, over 200 people gathered to solidify the direction and work of the newly formed NPRA. Together, the attendants established a position on a number of central issues affecting Puerto Ricans. The agenda was revised and approved at the July 14, 2018 Convention in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
