Dear Friends of the Latina/o Studies Program,

Many people in our community, at the University of Michigan and beyond, have family and friends who are affected by these two natural disasters. We stand with Mexico and Puerto Rico as they rebuild and recover from the devastation, both physical and emotional, wrought by these unforeseen events.

Latina/o Studies professor Larry LaFountain Stokes has kindly shared these resources for those who would like to help the recovery efforts:
