Who is the Puerto Rican Agenda?

The Puerto Rican Agenda is non-profit organization of local Puerto Rican leaders that seek to influence policy for the advancement of the Puerto Rican community in Chicago. Over the past two decades, the Agenda continues to develop and execute a community-driven vision for the Humboldt Park Area, where most Puerto Ricans in Chicago live, and Paseo Boricua, a business and entertainment district on Division Street between California and Western.

The members of The Agenda consist of executive directors of community-based non-profit organizations, senior leadership of social service and city agencies, local educators, academic scholars, medical professionals, and business leaders.
