Raíces Means Roots

Who We Are

Raíces Cultural Center is a New Jersey based 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to preserving cultural roots through the arts, history and ecology.

What We Do

Through our programs and initiatives, we seek to provide a platform for the investigation, documentation, preservation, dissemination, and exchange of knowledge and ideas related to the history and evolution of cultural traditions.

At the Roots

In everything we do, we strive to develop meaningful interchanges and resources that pay homage to ancestral cultural traditions while exploring and building upon their evolution in an ever-changing world.
