The Response: How Puerto Ricans are bringing power to the people

The Response Film.jpg

In the wake of Hurricane Maria, a quiet revolution has been percolating on the island of Puerto Rico. What began as an impromptu community kitchen meant to help feed survivors in the town of Caguas quickly grew into an island-wide network of mutual aid centers (Centros de Apoyo Mutuo) with the ultimate goal to restore power — both electric and civic — to the people.This film was made by our comrades and fellow cooperators at Sharable.
