Become Part of Our History:
Join Centro’s 100 Puerto Ricans



To encourage individuals and organizations to record and document their experiences for future generations, Centro and a group of community volunteers have launched the 100 Puerto Ricans Campaign. The goal is to urge those who have made a difference in our community to donate their important documents to the Centro Archives and to fill gaps in our collections.
