Read our reasons below why you should support the premier voice for the Puerto Rican Diaspora. If you rather provide us a gracious donation without explanation, click here. Thank you.

La Respuesta is a platform to showcase the critical, provocative, and inspiring work by, for, and about Boricuas living in The Diaspora and Puerto Rico. Since our launch in 2013, our self-funded, all-volunteer run, grassroots efforts have impacted a broad section of our communities, and provide a unique, relevant, and engaging forum for critical thinking and dialogue on issues that concern us. We are proud of how far we’ve come, and what we’ve been able to accomplish.

By donating, you can directly support our efforts to obtain the resources that would enhance our work and allow us to further engage our communities. It has not been easy running a magazine with expenses but without funding, so we are excited at the possibility of not only securing assistance, but also continuing to develop our publication with your direct support.

Here are 10 reasons you should consider donating:

  1. We are the only independent magazine by, about, and for the Boricua Diaspora.

  2. We aim to build unity among all Boricua peoples.

  3. We celebrate, while also critically engaging, our cultural identity and histories.

  4. We highlight events taking place in our communities.

  5. We engage in conversations with important Puerto Rican artists and leaders.

  6. We intentionally seek contributions from people in our community with historically marginalized identities, including DiaspoRicans, youth, people living with (dis)ability, women, LGBTQI folk, & Afro/ Black Boricuas.

  7. We practice solidarity and are dedicated to the collective transformation and self-determination of all oppressed peoples.

  8. We directly interact with our readers at public events.

  9. We collaborate with other media and community organizations in the spirit of mutual support.

  10. We promote social justice and liberation and use our independent voice to support social movements.

If you like what we at La Respuesta magazine do, consider donating today. Help us sustain our efforts as the only independent publication of the Boricua Diaspora, a space for the barrio nerds, malcriadxs, free thinkers, and dreamers of our communities!
