Since Hurricane Maria hit Puerto Rico, the Chelsea Collaborative has worked non-stop to mobilize community residents and partners and coordinate resources to send to our brothers and sisters in Puerto Rico.
In response to the Trump administration's announcement today to end DACA by March 5, 2018 - the Chelsea Collaborative reiterates our support for DACA recipients and all members of our community who are undocumented.
