Dia de Los Muertos Barrio Procession:
A time to remember those who have passed on because of domestic violence, highlight that issue in this community, and celebrate the lives of all those who have gone before us.

Paying respects to the altar of Sabrina Flores, a 16 year old girl who was murdered this year

Community members came out to pay their respects to los muertos

It was a wonderful, emotional, and fun event. Muchas gracias to everyone who came to bring awareness to domestic violence in this community and celebrate life.

And to all the Muertos who are with us every day,
