#Boricuasonline unite! As part of our work with the Center for Puerto Rican Studies, we have been producing the first panel ever on Puerto Ricans in Social Media. We could not be any more excited about this, as we get to play with some old and new friends to speak about the ways in which Puerto Ricans are creating, understanding, and sharing community online.

Wanna know who we have lined up for this event? The one and only Julio Ricardo Varela from Futuro Media Group and Latino Rebelsthe renaissance soul Mr. George Torres from Sofrito Media Group and Capicu Poetry & Cultural Showcase, our dear friend and fellow founder of ElPuntoes.com Nuria Net from Fusion (and from pretty much anything Latino Millennials), our new friend and beloved powerwoman, Lynn Ponder from Web City Girls, and the super hilarious Lejuan James from, well, Lejuan James. Did we mention that Suset will moderate? Then there’s that.

The panel will take place next Tuesday, May 12, 2015 from 6:00-8:00 PM at the Center for Puerto Rican Studies at Hunter College (Corner of 68th and Lexington, RM E1442) and will be also live streamed through Centro TV. A Twitter party under the hashtag #boricuasonline will be held for those watching online. It will be co-hosted by several Puerto Rican organizations and bloggers, including: @PRParadeNYC, @boriquachicks, @themommyelf, @estilofamiliar, @clubdelasdiosas, @modernmami,@newyoricangirl, @jillianbaez, @hfranqui, @miblogazine.

Join us live or via live stream. Definitely join the Twitterparty under #boricuasonline and let’s make some Wepa noise. We could not be prouder to be part of the initiative.
