National Congress for Puerto Rican Rights-
The technology committee was formed based on two premises: a) computer technology is an integral part of the further development of grassroots communities, b) Puerto Rican/Latino grassroots communities have failed to embrace this medium due to different reasons. The technology committee seeks to address these premises by organizing a holistic grassroots campaign to integrate and foster computer technology as a communication, educational, political, and economical tool for the further development of the Puerto Rican/Latino community(ies).
