Your Voice – Jones Act – 6/8/2018

Why does the same automobile cost $6,000 dollars more in Puerto Rico than it does in Florida? This episode of Your Voice from New York with host Nelson Denis focuses on the Jones Act – The Merchant Marine Act of 1920 which has had a tremendous financial impact on Puerto Rico. You will also hear about the National Day of Respect & Justice for Puerto Rico taking place later this year.

At NHMC’s KHBG-LP Radio, we believe that our communities must have a voice. Our mission is to give the mic back to the people so you have the power to share and stay connected. What better way than to have a talk show where community leaders have the opportunity to take over the mic to discuss what’s happening in their own communities and share their stories. Your Mic, Your Voice, Your Community!
