Comite Noviembre is dedicated to preserving Puerto Rican heritage and culture and organizes several cultural and community events in November for Puerto Rican Heritage Month in New York City. Tonight is the kick-off event of the wonderful lineup of activities coming up in the city, which includes the annual Puerto Rican artisans fair.
