Sila Calderón In "The Capital of Puerto Rico in the United States."
Connecticut, especially Hartford, has a special relationship with the island of Puerto Rico. These ties brought Sila Calderón to the state this week. She was the keynote speaker last night at a meeting of the Hartford Foundation for Public Giving’s Latino Endowment Fund.
Calderón was Puerto Rico’s first and only woman governor and the first woman elected to be Mayor of San Juan. She started the Sila M. Calderón Foundation – to reduce poverty and inequity, advance the role of women in society, promote urban revitalization, and strengthen ethical values and social responsibility in Puerto Rico.
