Empowering the Puerto Rican Community to Better Serve the Nation
The purpose of the United Puerto Rican Political Action Committee (UPR-PAC) is to establish and support grassroots of Puerto Ricans and allies that will work for positive, progressive change in the United States of America by increasing awareness of Puerto Rican issues, including economic, social, moral, cultural and Puerto Rican involvement in local, county and state politics, in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
To achieve these purposes, this Committee raises money for the purpose of contributing to candidates in Lawrence and at county/state level. We work tirelessly to educate elected officials and candidates for political office about the issues important to the members and supporters of UPR-PAC.
We support local/county/state candidates, preferably of Puerto Rican origin, for election whose platforms or agendas include a tangible commitment that encourage the political, economic, social, moral, cultural, and issues of Puerto Ricans residing in the city of Lawrence and the state of Massachusetts.
