NEW Blog Post on BoriquaChicks.com! 💔  Some folks can be insensitive. Yes, they may see you as this strong person, but just because you're keeping it cute and not on social media telling your life story, doesn't mean that you're not going through anything. Many times, when people go through a divorce, their world flips upside down. Their financial situation alters, their living arrangement may change, and depending on the scenario, the other partner may not be living their life in an equal state of devastation. How do you show up for someone you love who is going through a divorce or bad breakup? Tap link above to read more...💔

It’s been a while since we’ve posted…Raquel and I have been living life and took an unofficial break from the blog. Sometimes it’s good to just break away from social media and rest your mind, body, and soul. Within the last few years the media space has become increasingly saturated with content about #AfroLatinx. From random social media channels that share misinformation, to disingenuous publications that recycle the same material for clicks, it’s become more important to be as authentic as possible. During our hiatus, we’ve had to consider how we can really be true to our brand and purpose. Everyone has different reasons for launching and sustaining their platforms. For us, as it stands today, we realize our purpose is to be a voice in our community—whether it be highlighting Chicago, Afro-Latinx, or Puerto Ricans. Thank you to those who have been rocking with us since day one and to those who have connected with us in more recent years; we appreciate your support. Our commitment from this point forward is to use our platform to share what we CARE about and what MOVES us—which might not be what the masses are chatting about. In the spirit of staying true to our purpose and letting the voices of our peoples ring true, we’re back and still unapologetically BLACK.
Peace, Love, & Light to you.
Rebecca & Raquel ❤

#ThrowBack On June 1, 2018, protesters in San Juan left more than 100 pairs of shoes outside the Capitolio, home to Puerto Rico’s legislature, as a silent rebuke to the government for undercounting the number of residents who died last year from the effects of Hurricane Maria. At a rally held in New York the same day, speakers captured the disappointment of the crowd.

64 is bs! ➡ "Our results indicate that the official death count of 64 is a substantial underestimate of the true burden of mortality after Hurricane Maria. Our estimate of 4645 excess deaths from September 20 through December 31, 2017, is likely to be conservative since subsequent adjustments for survivor bias and household-size distributions increase this estimate to more than 5000." ✍

NO access to basic necessities to live! ➡ "In our survey, interruption of medical care was the primary cause of sustained high mortality rates in the months after the hurricane, a finding consistent with the widely reported disruption of health systems." ✍
•
•
Numbers matter! ➡ "The timely estimation of the death toll after a natural disaster is critical to defining the scale and severity of the crisis and to targeting interventions for recovery." ✍
