Update On Chicago’s Puerto Rico Relief Efforts

Fires, floods, and tweeting politicians have a tendency to push other stories out of the headlines. But the situation in Puerto Rico is still far from normal.  Four months after Hurricane Maria hit the island, 40 percent of its residents are still without power. We get an update on the situation, how relief efforts are going, and find out how those that came to the Chicago area in the wake of Hurricane Maria are coping.

GUEST: 

Cristina Pacione-Zayas, co-chair of the Puerto Rican Agenda
