Día de los Muertos | Nov. 1

"WE ARE OUR ANCESTORS' WILDEST DREAMS"

Please join us at this year's Día de los Muertos event at Vía Raíz. I'm excited to announce that I'm collaborating with local Latinx artist Heldáy Benjamin de la Cruz, founder of Power To The Dreamers, to host this year's event as a fundraiser for Oregon DACA Coalition.

This November 12th, the Supreme Court will begin the decision-making process on the potential termination of DACA. This decision will affect over 700,000 undocumented individuals and their families. 

On Día de los Muertos we honor and remember our loved ones who have passed away. This year's event will not only celebrate the lives of our loved ones but will also honor all the beautiful migrant lives lost on their journey to seek a brighter future.

We welcome you to bring photos of your loved ones to place at the altar. Due to limited space we recommend wallet size photos so everyone has a place at the altar.

This will be a ticketed event with limited capacity. Proceeds from ticket and raffle sales will be donated to the Oregon DACA Coalition.
