Interview with Ronald Blackburn-Moreno on Aug 11, 2015, Segment 20, Part 1
CENTRO: 100 Puerto Ricans Oral History Project, 2013-
Ronald Blackburn-Moreno discusses how the ASPIRA clubs are central to the process. Because leadership is so important, ASPIRA requires that before contributing or establishing an office, the community must show interest and come together. Their philosophy is that change must come from within, not from an organization telling people what to do.
