Ibero-American Action League is inviting community leaders and organizations to join the conversation to plan and support relief efforts for those in Puerto Rico impacted by Hurricane Fiona.
The meeting will take place Sept. 19 at 3:30 p.m. at Ibero’s Community Resource Center, 216 Clifford Ave., Rochester.
After Hurricane Maria in 2017, Ibero helped close to 5,000 people from Puerto Rico and received 180 families in Rochester. The agency understands it may be called to engage in similar efforts for Hurricane Fiona.
“Hopefully, things will resolve themselves quickly on the island and this doesn’t create another mass exodus. Nevertheless, we must be prepared, as this has been a long journey for many Puerto Ricans, many who had not fully recovered, and might have lost whatever they had left,” said Angelica Perez-Delgado, president and CEO of Ibero.
