11/1: 15th Annual Dia de los Muertos Celebration
This year’s theme is Perseverance – Power in Action: Voice! Vote! Venceremos! Perseverance is defined as “persistence in doing something despite difficulty or delay in achieving success”. We can make a difference and change by organizing our communities to get out the vote, registering to vote and to be counted in the 2020 census. This administration incited fear in our communities, scaring them away from the census, which will take away important funding from programs that help those in need. El Vez will be this year’s MC! We will also have performances by Folklore Tonatzin, Duo Finelli, Ceatl Tonalli, Chief Sealth Int’l High School and a Selena impersonator. Hosted by El Centro de la Raza.
