MESSAGE FROM OUR EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR 2020 WAS A YEAR OF MANY UNFORESEEN EVENTS. DESPITE THE FACT THAT WE EXPERIENCED MANY CHANGES, THERE WAS SOMETHING THAT DID NOT CEASE AT ANY TIME: THE PASSION OF YOUNG PEOPLE TO TRANSFORM PUERTO RICO. USING THIS AS A DRIVING FORCE, WE ESTABLISHED FOR THE FIRST TIME A 12 MONTH EDITION OF THE PARACA FELLOWSHIP, 5 CIVIC ACTION #ENACCIÓN LABS AND THE #ESMITURNO CAMPAIGN, IN WHICH WE INSERTED YOUNG PEOPLE TO IMPACT THE ELECTORAL PROCESS. MPA'S GROWTH IN THE MIDST OF THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC IS A SIGN THAT PUERTO RICO HAS YOUNG PEOPLE WHO ARE TIRED OF BEING SPECTATORS AND ARE NOT GOING TO WAIT TO MAKE THEIR LIFE PROJECT, A PROJECT FOR PUERTO RICO.
