Since 2017, Junta has been at the forefront of climate change- induced disasters. When Hurricane Maria caused thousands of Puerto Ricans to seek refuge in New Haven, Junta worked to assist the influx of displaced families.
Most recently, in February 2020, Junta also hosted a Community Soup Night with Fair Haven residents to raise funds to support families displaced by the earthquakes. Alongside the organizing efforts of The Chatham Square Neighborhood Association, the event raised $1,000 toward Junta’s resettlement efforts.
