Following the publication of the ReImagina Puerto Rico Report, ReImagina presented the project in Washington, D.C. with the main objectives of (1) promoting the project throughout Congress and federal agencies responsible for the reconstruction of Puerto Rico, and (2) establishing ReImagina as a viable resource in Puerto Rico. The ReImagina team briefed reporters, congressional staff, federal agency personnel, and Senators on the report’s 97 specific recommendations. While in Washington, D.C. ReImagina met with federal officials at the Office of Management and Budget, the Department of Housing and Urban Development, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), and the congressional offices of Congresswoman Nydia Velazquez (NY-7), Resident Commissioner Jennifer Gonzalez (PR), Senator Dick Durbin (IL), Senator Marco Rubio (FL), Senator Bob Menéndez (NJ), Senator Susan Collins (ME), Senator Lisa Murkowski (AK) and Senator Bill Nelson (FL). Shortly afterwards, ReImagina also presented the project at a convening in New York for philanthropy and organizations interested in the recovery work taking place in Puerto Rico.
