More information about the project

Our community’s histories are important for our present and future. The Carlos Rosario School has received a grant from the Mayor Muriel Bowser's Office on Latino Affairs to launch the “Nuestra Ciudad Project.” The project explores the strategies that leaders like Carlos Rosario and Sonia Gutiérrez, our School’s co-founders, used to make significant gains for the Latino community during the 1970’s.
