Carmen Vega-Rivera was a tireless educator and community organizer. For sixteen years she lead the East Harlem Tutorial Program. Through her innovative vision, she created a program that was a support system for the many children of East Harlem. Through literacy, the arts, and cultural identity, Carmen provided a sanctuary and programming that set a course and standard for other after school programs around the nation. Graduates of the program have gone on to live full, productive lives thanks to her and the team of educators she brought together. We the undersigned, want to honor her legacy of unconditional love for the East Harlem community as an educator, mentor and friend. We want to see the NE corner of East 105th Street, and 2nd Avenue, in Manhattan to be renamed Carmen Vega-Rivera Way.
