National Puerto Rican Coalition

National Puerto Rican Coalition National Puerto Rican Coalition, Inc 1444 I Street, NW Suite 800 Washington, DC 20005 phone: 202-223-3915 e-mail: [email protected] In 1977, a group of 40 community leaders and representatives met in Washington, D.C.
(3)

at the invitation of the U. S. Commission on Civil Rights to discuss the future of the stateside Puerto Rican community. The Commission had released a report in 1976, Puerto Ricans in the Continental United States: An Uncertain Future, and convened the meeting to discuss what the community leadership could do at the national level to bring about change. A consensus emerged that there was a need to establish an organization in Washington, D.C. to represent the interests of the community before national policy makers. The result was the creation of the National Puerto Rican Coalition, Inc. (NPRC) which brings together community leaders and organizations in an association that addresses public policy issues and provides visibility and awareness of Puerto Rican community issues and concerns at the national level. The National Puerto Rican Coalition, Inc. was incorporated as a membership organization in 1977.

Mission: NPRC's mission is to systematically strengthen and enhance the social, political, and economic well-being of Puerto Ricans throughout the United States and in Puerto Rico with a special focus on the most vulnerable.
