Philanthropist David M. Rubenstein Establishes Fund at WETA, Flagship Public Broadcaster in the Nation’s Capital
Arlington, Virginia — Philanthropist David M. Rubenstein and WETA President and Chief Executive Officer Sharon Percy Rockefeller today announced the establishment of The David M. Rubenstein Fund at WETA, a $1 million fund to create programming that celebrates American culture, history and public affairs.
Inspired by the film Latino Americans, we decided to seek out a local perspective on the Latino experience in our community with our weta.org Digital Extras. Luis Araya immigrated to Arlington, Virginia from Bolivia in 1966, when very few Latinos lived in the county. He reflects on the changes he has seen over the years and the influence of Latinos in Arlington today.
