Puerto Rico Federal Affairs Administration
Many Puertorriqueños living in #NYC need to obtain important documents from Puerto Rico but have no means of getting them. Together w/ Gobernador Pierluisi & Senator Chuck Schumer we are bringing Puerto Rico Federal Affairs Administration resources to #NY15 to help Puertorriqueños obtain those documents.
OCTOBER IS NATIONAL DOMESTIC VIOLENCE AWARENESS MONTH I dedicate this heartfelt testimony to my loving, three daughters Adita, Sandy, Anabel & my one and only loving son Billy, who have braved the storm with me and became compassionate, loving, nonjudgmental human beings, when it could have gone very differently, there, but for the Grace of our Lord and Savior. To all the sisters, mothers, daughters, & up and coming young boys and men, who continue to make History by making life altering choices, as difficult as it is. OCTOBER IS NATIONAL DOMESTIC VIOLENCE AWARENESS MONTH https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nIt0u_ELWJI A Video about Domestic Violence by Nitza Vera. NYS Commission on the Status of Women Hearings Bronx, NY. Banana Kelly 8/1994 "In 1994, after the OJ Simpson murder case, NYS held hearings in all 5 boroughs in a collaboration with the NYS Commission on the Status of Women, of which Congresswoman Molinari was Chair. I took part in the Bronx Domestic Violence Hearings which took place at the Rotunda at the Bronx Borough President's, hon. Fernando Ferrer's office in the Supreme Court Building. I wanted to point out how domestic violence affected my life as a child, mother, neighbor, wife, service provider and community resident. Speaking of such a taboo subject in a Latino community was almost unbearable, but I needed to do the best I could for my daughters and young women. As a result, policies with the Section 8 programs and Intimate Partnership were created to include and protect families who were excluded previously. I use this video to educate and create dialogue among not just our women, but also men who believed that this was part of being a father and husband. Please use and forward to those who will benefit, clients or staff. Thank you" God bless you, Una servidora, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nIt0u_ELWJI

Feliciano, para presentarle la posición del sector privado con respecto a la propuesta del “Crédito por Empleo” que se encuentra para aprobación en el Comité de Medios y Arbitrios de la Cámara Federal. El #CCPA ha estado colaborando arduamente junto al sector privado para presentar una posición alineada en términos de evaluar los méritos de la propuesta e identificar puntos que se podrían mejorar para que la misma sea más atractiva para Puerto Rico como destino. Además, se habló sobre el pareo en el Seguro Social Suplementario y nos pusimos a la disposición para colaborar en proyectos que resulten en el bienestar socioeconómico de Puerto Rico. #CreandoElCambioYFortaleciendoElMañana

La directora ejecutiva de PRFAA (Puerto Rico Federal Affairs Administration), Carmen Feliciano, explicó que la “legislación presentada en el Congreso proporciona un alivio muy necesario a los niños y a las familias que día a día luchan contra la adversidad económica.

Puerto Rico Federa affairs You have an important political position as a ferderal affairs you can make great changes for the people and the enviroment. If you just put a little attention to the home inventor just like myself who can't afford the high pricess of patent application process with a cost of $10,000 to $15,000 thousand dollars which the home inventor can't afford the world woul have a better chance to deal with the harsh times the world is yet to encounter and do not let our future in the hands of the rich and powerful to care for their own interest at the cost and suffering of the poor and the oppressed people of this world. Because if we work together for the same goal we can find the solutions for any problem the world is about to face and there a lot of issues that need our attention right now before is too late like the shortage of food, water, energy, health, housing, transportation, export, import of goods just to mention a few. Polution and global warming that we shall start doing something right now instead of just talking about it in goverment building. Help the home inventor where all inventions are discovered sence the begining of time. Help us listen to our ideas and inventions and the world would be a better place to live. You can be sure if that. As an inventor myself I have no doubt. I'm just saying.. GOOD LUCK ......
