Founded in 1973, the Puerto Rican Cultural Center Juan Antonio Corretjer is a non-profit, community-based umbrella institution, which seeks to serve the social/cultural needs of Chicago’s Puerto Rican/Latino community. It is built on the following principles: a philosophy of self-determination, a methodology of self-actualization and critical thought, and an ethics of self-reliance best expressed in the motto, “To live and help to live.”
The Puerto Rican Cultural Center (PRCC) is named after Juan Antonio Corretjer, the celebrated Puerto Rican national poet and political leader. It serves as a place where people come together to address the critical problems confronting the community and to recover their history, to share in the music, poetry and drama of Puerto Ricans both at home and in the diaspora.
All of the PRCC’s programs encourage participants to think critically about their reality and to promote an ethics of self-reliance based on social responsibility. They deal with health, social, and cultural issues that affect Puerto Rican/Latino and poor communities, such as AIDS, education, literacy, housing, homophobia, drug addiction, gang violence, teen pregnancy, police brutality, racism, economic and community development and human rights violations.
