Antonia Pantoja

Dr. Antonia Pantoja, Social Work ’54, a pioneer in education, social work, feminism, and civil rights. The founder of ASPIRA, the Puerto Rican Forum,
Boricua College, and Producir, Dr. Pantoja demonstrated the true value of leadership in our community: the ability to create profound change in
all that she touched with her kind hands.

Dr. Pantoja’s life, from her girlhood in San Juan, to her community organizing in New York City and San Diego, to her social and political activism (retirement) in the foothills of El Yunque, Puerto Rico. It is a wonderful work that reminds us to never forget one of our greatest heroes.

Antonia Pantoja: Presente! tells the story of educator/organizer Antonia Pantoja, founder of the New York-based advocacy organization, Aspira. A passionate, indomitable leader, Pantoja worked with Puerto Rican “immigrant-citizens” to fight against second-class citizenship and to secure a bilingual voice. Through passionate personal testimony, never-before-seen home movies, archival footage, and the work of visual artist Juan Sanchez, the feisty Antonia Pantoja guides us through the Puerto Rican community’s struggles and triumphs.
