Día de Muertos + Vigil for 500 Days in Sanctuary, 3 p.m., Saturday, 11/10.

Rosa will be creating an altar for everyone to share their photos and ofrendas for their deceased relatives and pets. There will also be a cemetery to place headstones labeled with the “things” in this world we would like to see die — fear, racism, oppression, hatred, captivity, apathy, and more.

What is the “Day of the Dead” all about?

There will be information sharing about the next steps in the effort to allow Rosa to leave sanctuary. She recently passed 500 days in sanctuary. There will be time for people to ask questions about the next steps and what has been happening recently.

This is a Mexican-themed potluck! Please bring a dish to share. Costumes are highly encouraged!
