About NJ4PR

New Jersey for Puerto Rico is an initiative sponsored and spearheaded by leaders of New Jersey's half-million-strong Puerto Rican community to rally behind our friends and family on the island who are suffering so terribly in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria. Together with the State of New Jersey, we've partnered with strategic leaders in disaster recovery and service - the American Red Cross, the Salvation Army, Boys & Girls Clubs of Puerto Rico, and others - to get the people of Puerto Rico the aid they so desperately need as fast as possible. It's a joint effort of state leaders, legislators, businesses, faith communities and charities to assist Puerto Rico in the difficult months and years to come.

Honorary Chair: the Hon. Kenneth McClintock

The Honorable Kenneth D. McClintock served as the twenty-second Secretary of State of Puerto Rico - one of the longest to serve in that post. His prior service also includes terms as President of the Puerto Rico Statehood Students' association, which he cofounded in 1979; Executive Director of the Puerto Rico chapter of the US Democratic Party; a Democratic Party National Committeman and member of the Democratic Platform Committee; member of the Municipal Council of San Juan, Puerto Rico; and President of the Puerto Rico Senate. During his 16 years as a legislator, McClintock authored more than 1,200 measures, over 200 of which became law. Secretary McClintock is a laureate of the Meritorious Service Award and remains an active teacher, board member for several organizations and a frequent contributor and columnist for several newspapers and magazines in English and Spanish on issues of interest to the Puerto Rican community.
