Colonia Loma Linda is driving on newly paved streets
By Ramiro Gonzalez, February 7, 2023

Colonia Loma Linda has been organizing for over a decade, taking action on canals, street safety, and public lights as the years went on. The colonia recently had a victory on newly paved streets, which they celebrated Friday, January 27th, 2023. The event was organized by LUPE Community Organizer Blanca Alcaraz and residents of Colonia Loma Linda. San Juan Mayor Mario Garza also attended their communal potluck and thanked the residents for their civic engagement. ¡Si se puede!
