The PRCC recently announced 2 new additions to our admin staff. Juan Calderón, who is the director of VidaSIDA program will now have additional responsibilities as the Puerto Rican Cultural Center’s new Chief Operating Office and Militza Pagán is the new Deputy Director. Juan Calderón has directed Vida/SIDA for the past 6 years.
During that time he has expanded the work including the opening of El Rescate Transitional Living Initiative for Latino LGBTQ homeless youth as well as the creation of Generation L, a Latino LGBTQ drop-in and resource center. Under his leadership, VidaSIDA budget has grown to over 1 million. Militza Pagán grew up in this community and has been active in many efforts, including the Puerto Rican Agenda and as anorganizer for immigrant rights. She has a BA from Yale University. The PRCC is extremely happy with these changes for they will create a more effective administrative structure.
