The people are desperate for help... Despite all that is happening we are focused and ready to work and support."

As you know, Puerto Rico has endured a series of earthquakes over the past couple of weeks that have been devastating to the island, which is still dealing with the aftermath of Hurricane Maria.

NYSUT has been in touch with AFT Executive Vice President, NYSUT Board of Director and UFT VP for Education, Evelyn DeJesus, who is in Puerto Rico assisting with efforts.

Evelyn has expressed the dire need to help the people of Puerto Rico.

Please consider contributing to the NYSUT Disaster Relief Fund to help us provide resources to those in need of assistance.
