Carmen Yulín Cruz | Season 1 Episode 12 | Breaking Big

The protests in Puerto Rico are nothing short of extraordinary, but also long overdue. Women and the LGBTQ+ community have long been neglected and deserve the same opportunities and rights as their Catholic male counterparts, including Gov. Ricardo Rosselló who represents all this is still ideologically toxic on the island. Last year, Calico produced a PBS doc on Carmen Yulín, mayor of San Juan, and in it we deconstruct her own struggle against the status quo and transformation from traditional and conservative views towards a more liberal stance of social equity. We also talk about machismo for all you Latinx folks who know exactly what this is and how it affects everyday life! Vamos.

Track Cruz’ route from San Juan mayor to leader of post-hurricane Puerto Rico.
