Thousands gathered Sunday on the National Mall in Washington to demand the federal government increase its commitment to disaster relief on hurricane-ravaged Puerto Rico. Participants met in front of the U.S. Capitol in the morning before marching to the Lincoln Memorial, where speakers delivered remarks amid a sea of Puerto Rican flags. Lin-Manuel Miranda, whose parents were both born in Puerto Rico, called on federal agencies to increase their aid and security to the more than 3.4 million Puerto Rico residents affected.
