At the 2015 Feria del Barrio yesterday, the colors were bright, activities numerous and streets full of joy as people came from across the city and region for the annual community outing, sponsored by Taller Puertorriqueño.
As in years past, the vivid daylong array of artisans, dancers, musicians and other performers made this cultural showcase a smash for attendees of every age. Beyond entertainment, valuable workshops and resource exchanges also were in place.
And in the mix of it all was PCHR, represented by veteran Nancy Rivera, a supervisor in the compliance division and alum of the community relations division. From neighbor disputes to Ban the Box details, she answered scores of questions for the dozens who visited the table. She even caught up with an extended member of the PCHR family, former employee Sonia Collazo.
It was a great September day for a street festival, and a wonderful way to usher in Hispanic Heritage Month 2015!
