Hispanic Federation has been front and center in lobbying bipartisan support to help rebuild the island in diverse scenarios of daily life. Communications Shop has an extensive record supporting Hispanic Federation’s efforts to denounce and bring to an end the inequities against Puerto Rican citizens living on the island, especially after Hurricane Maria in 2017.
In April 2023, Communications Shop provided media relations support for a press conference with Hispanic Federation and the Coalition for Food Security Puerto Rico, U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, and other members of Congress calling for the transition of Puerto Rico from the Nutrition Assistance Program (NAP) into the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) as part of the 2023 Farm Bill. Nearly one in three NAP households in Puerto Rico are of adults 60 years or older, and older adults, children, low-income working people, persons with disabilities, and many other families represent 80% of all NAP households.
