The Community

In gratitude to the communities who supported The UO Puerto Rico Project

The UO Puerto Rico Project Archival Team, Winter 2018-Spring 2018

In Winter 2018, Dr. Alaí Reyes-Santos and two student interns, Vickie Gimm and Bareerah Zafar, compile and edit documents, timelines, and interviews. Gimm boosts the online platforms on YouTube, Facebook and Twitter. Zafar creates A Photographic Journey and reflections on her trip to Puerto Rico. In Spring 2018, Miguel Pérez joins us to create podcast-style audio files of our interviews for our Storytelling section.
