Episode Details

Original tape date: June 22, 2018.

First aired: September 21, 2018.

The Trump administration claims its response to Hurricane Maria was a "tremendous," "unsung" success. Yet, what has been truly tremendous in the year since the hurricane is the will of Puerto Ricans building, organizing, and recovering on the island.

This week on the Laura Flanders Show, we report from CommonBound. Laura speaks to Edgar Gomez, a city official from the town Toa Baja, PR and two education activists from the island, Ana Yris Guzman Toress of Nuestra Escuela Puerto Rico and Nicolle Teresa Ramos, coordinator of Universidad Sin Fronteras.
