In 2016, Eisner Award-winning graphic novelist and philanthropist Edgardo Miranda-Rodriguez created La Borinqueña to drive conversations around the social, economic, and environmental crises affecting Puerto Rico. As a direct response to Hurricane Maria, he created our La Borinqueña Grants Program which has awarded $165,000 in grants to non-profit organizations across Puerto Rico.
Miranda-Rodriguez is now collaborating with NRDC to expand on La Borinqueña’s commitment to sustainability, environmental justice, and philanthropy. By focusing on Puerto Rico’s rebuilding efforts post Hurricane Maria, La Borinqueña Guest Starring: Rosario Dawson is a graphic novel spreading awareness of the dangers of climate change and shares an example of how a community is bouncing back with clean energy.
