Who We Are

Roots & Raíces is a communications platform based in Baltimore City that collaborates with the non-profits Rising Over Standards and Excelling (ROSE) and CASA de Maryland to produce this annual Festival. 

Mission:

Roots & Raíces Festival provides a platform primarily for immigrants and for allies to be represented in the arts in Baltimore City by giving them agency to perform, promote, and celebrate their artistic contributions to the United States. We also aim to use this platform in collaboration with CASA to inform and encourage participants to take action in advocating for immigrant rights.

Vision:

Our vision is to change the narrative of how immigrants are perceived in the United States in order to generate equitable social change for all immigrants.
