    Tucked away in a small banquet room in the basement of the Rayburn Building, Congressman Luis Gutierrez addressed an assembled group of roughly 30 members of the National Hispanic Construction Association (NHCA) on Tuesday, March 24, 2015, at their legislative symposium. In what were inspired and passionate remarks to the intimate group of Hispanic businesspersons gathered at the lunch time press conference, Gutierrez repeated once and again his belief that passage of Comprehensive Immigration Reform (CIR) was simply a matter of time and "if the Republicans are smart", they would pass it before the 2016 election.

Dr. Ricardo Galbis

DC's Latino Mental Health Pioneer & Community Icon

Jose Sueiro
"Oye Chico, como estas?" is the proverbial greeting of psychiatrist Ricardo Galbis whenever he meets someone in the community (loosely translated; "Hey man, how you doing?"). The warm, gentle, proud Cuban doctor is an institution in this town and a constant, peripatetic presence in the life of the Latino community where he has touched so many troubled lives and looked after so many different communities. He is considered a distinguished elder and a prominent icon for Hispanics in the region.

Julio Mariño & the Grand Tradition

of Latin American Painters in Adams Morgan

Jose Sueiro
There are those who would argue that the movement to establish an Art Museum of the Americas at the OAS began here in the Adams Morgan neighborhood of Washington DC under the tutelage of the famous Jose Gomez Sicre who established a very prominent art 'salon' at his house in the 1700 block of Lanier Place from the 1950's until his death in 1991. During that period some of the most distinguished Latin American painters and plastic artists visited the neighborhood and Gomez Sicre accumulated one of the most impressive collections of Latin American art in the world. His home, besides being a hotbed of artistic discussion and exploration, was filled with paintings as if in a museum.
