The Richie Pérez Scholarship for Peace & Justice
Youth Leadership Development
In 2004, the Puerto Rican community lost an advocate, community leader, and urban warrior. Richie Pérez was an activist and leader in the fight for social justice and human rights. Richie believed greatly in the power and potential of young people to create social change. In his memory, Comité Noviembre established the Richie Pérez Scholarship for Peace & Justice to recognize Puerto Rican young people for their commitment, activism, and achievements in the areas of human rights and social justice.
