Dominican Republic

Juntos con Vecinos, our project in the Washington Heights neighborhood of New York City, also conducted activities in the Dominican Republic, which served to further connect the Dominican and non-Dominican communities back in Washington Heights. William Harvey gave an outreach concert at Villa Bendicion and was a guest on Freddy y Punto, the most-watched TV program in the country. A big article about Juntos con Vecinos and Cultures in Harmony appeared in Clave, the leading weekly news magazine there. In August 2009, Juntos con Vecinos piano teacher Irene Wong attended a poetry retreat in the Dominican Republic with Dr. Piña. In January 2010, William returned to the Dominican Republic for the third time.
