Roots and Action (Raices y Action), was inspired by the work and life of legendary Puerto Rican leader, Antonia Pantoja. Our guest speakers, Barbara Vlahides and Tere Martinez, gave a most lively interesting talk about their project that teaches and inspires, through theater educational workshops, young Puerto Ricans to lead and change what they want to see in their country. Co-Founder, Educator and Artistic Director, Tere, and Co-Founder, Barbara, Executive Director, have seen the results when engaging students through drama. That is when most of the learning happens. A very upbeat and animated program.
