For Puerto Ricans, a year of mourning and recovery has passed. After Hurricane María decimated 80 percent of its crops, left thousands without power for almost a year, and deepened the island’s economic crisis, boricuas have challenged the local and federal governments to take responsibility for the negligence that led to nearly 3,000 deaths in the aftermath of the storm.

As Puerto Ricans gear up to commemorate the one-year anniversary of Hurricane Maria, activists, artists, and interfaith groups are joining forces to honor the victims of the category 4 storm that ravaged the island on September 20, 2017. With their own events – of varying sizes – people are raising money and awareness for the island.

Below, check out where you support Puerto Ricans on this anniversary.
