It has been six months after hurricane Maria and the island of Puerto Rico is still struggling with massive infrastructure issues. Samantha Bee takes her show on the road to Puerto Rico to investigate. This segment features Allana Harking investigating a group of women in Loíza, Puerto Rico who, in the absence of Federal FEMA assistance, began asking the community what their most pressing concerns were. Discovering that a frequent answer was the lack of a roof, they set about mitigating those concerns by installing tarps to provide protection.

Since our platform is about expressing ideas and ideals instead of cash flow, clicks, or fundraising, we have the freedom to include a wide range of topics and formats that might not work elsewhere. We don’t need or want paid content, promotional materials, or story lines designed to please donors.
So the idea here is to present videos one or more of the editors feel speaks to them. Sometimes it will be news. Sometimes it will be history. And a lot of the time it will be culture. You can not and should not separate these things: it is diversity and intersectionality that makes our movement strong.
