The 2013 Convention in Puerto Rico was the first ever NLG Convention held in a U.S. colony. The event's location inspired vibrant discussion about the island's colonial status, as members learned about the Puerto Rican independence movement and the work of political prisoners such as Oscar López Rivera and our keynote speaker, Rafael Cancel Miranda.
