The beautiful story that aired on WJLA Channel 7 in 2014 about Marie Reed and Fillmore student Edwin Castillo says it all: Fillmore is worth keeping, forever.

Any discussion about arts programming in the city schools should include the long-term future and permanent funding of Fillmore Arts Center.
We appreciate all the support the Fillmore Arts Center has received to date through its petition at change.org, and the thousands of comments about how the program has changed students’ lives.
Fillmore deserves the respect it has earned through its 42 years of programming that have truly affected thousands of DCPS students.
