Townsquare Sunday: Reverend David Soto and Puerto Rican Refugees
More than 200 families from Puerto Rico have re-settled in New Bedford following devastating hurricanes last year. They've had to find places to live, register their children in schools, and in general start a whole new way of life. A number of agencies and individuals have been working to help those families settle in, including Reverend David Soto of New Bedford. Townsquare Sunday’s host Jim Phillips interviews Rev. Soto on this week's program, to learn how those families are adapting. Rev. Soto will also provide an update on the city's Latino community in general.
Townsquare Sunday with Jim Phillips can be heard each Sunday at 6 a.m. on WBSM 1420 and WBSM.com. Townsquare Sunday is a weekly public affairs program highlighting non-profits and community organizations in the Greater New Bedford area.
