PR on the Map

In October 2019, just weeks after Category 4 Hurricane Maria ravaged Puerto Rico, Rosa organized and led a group of media producers educated in the archipelago's political history and colonial status to Puerto Rico to document the devastation and share the untold stories of survivors.

Together, the dedicated and talented team – including videographer Daniel Hernandez, video producer Kat Lazo, journalist Raquel Reichard, videographer/photographer Eli Jacobs-Fantauzzi, videographer/creative director Mateo Zapato, organizer Stephanie Martin-Llanes and communications Strategist Yanira Castro – produced multiple articles, short films and media projects.


We are grateful for the numerous contributions we received, including a generous donation from Tony Award-winner V Ensler, to fund the trip, produce original reporting and storytelling as well as provide supplies and cash for grassroots organizations working on the frontlines. The partner and fiscal agents of the fund was the well-known Caribbean Cultural Center African Diaspora Institute (CCCADI), founded by Dr. Marta Morena Vega and headed by Deputy Director Melody Capote.
