Welcome/Bienvenidos to the New York Chapter from President Rivera 


As President of NACOPRW’s New York Chapter, I am humbly honored to lead this great organization that over the years has contributed greatly to our Latino community and has been a significant leader not only in New York, but also at a National level within NACOPRW.  Our past leaders have laid the foundation and groundwork for the great work done by the New York Chapter. It is my goal to honor this legacy and to move the New York Chapter to greater success.

The driving force behind all our efforts is the dedication and commitment of our chapter members. Year after year, whether it is awarding scholarships to young Latinas or mobilizing relief efforts to help our island of Puerto Rico through most difficult challenge, our members always say “¡PRESENTE!”  As Chapter President, my priority is to continue to engage past members and recruit new members to help us fulfill the mission of NACOPRW. We have a lot of work to do, and I ask that you join me in re-energizing our chapter and taking it to greater heights.


Sandra Rivera
