Valor y Cambio Project Featured in Brooklyn Public Library Podcast

Frances Negron-Muntaner, co-director of CSSD working group Unpayable Debt and Professor of English and Comparative Literature at Columbia, discussed the Valor y Cambio project on a recent episode of the Brooklyn Public Library podcast. In the show Frances talks about how the project was created following Hurricane Maria when proposals for a new library system were met a lack of enthusiasm.

In an effort to show that people in Puerto Rico both want and need community spaces and free access to information she launched the community project Valor y Cambio, which invited people to share stories about what they value. The initiative brought Puerto Ricans together and demonstrated the importance of community.
