    A Million Puerto Ricans in the Sunshine State

    According to data released by the American Community Survey, in 2014, Florida became the second state that more than a million Puerto Ricans call home. To provide perspective on this milestone in the history of stateside Puerto Ricans, the Center for Puerto Rican Studies has released a data brief analyzing the ACS data. The data brief looks at Florida’s rapidly growing Puerto Rican population in the context of other trends in Puerto Rican migration, both to/from the island and throughout the U.S.

    You can read the data brief here.

    Mark your calendars: Citizenship Symposium


    In anticipation of the centennial of the enactment of the 1917 Jones Act, the Center for Puerto Rican Studies (CENTRO) is holding a symposium examining the history and legacy of the collective naturalization of Puerto Ricans as United States citizens. The collective naturalization provision of the Jones Act not only departed from all prior precedents, but also established a new precedent for the extension of citizenship to annexed territories. The symposium will be held October 15-16, 2015 at Hunter College.

    More information and conference program will be posted in the upcoming weeks. Save the date!
