We only ask that it be relevant to the Puerto Rican people and experiences in the U.S. and stay true to our mission and vision. We also strongly encourage submissions from Puerto Ricans of other historically marginalized identities, including youth, women, afrodescendientes, queer and trans folks, and those living with (dis)ability.
