On November 2nd we celebrate Day of the Dead. A tradition originally practiced in Mexico, Day of the Dead is now recognized widely as an important holiday in the U.S. as well. In California especially, this ritual has become a bridge that brings together members of diverse communities in order to remember and honor our loved ones who have passed away. The altar will be up through Friday, November 14th, and we welcome your leaving of offerings, images, notes, mementos, etc. to commemorate your loved ones. Remembrances can be left at any time this week and are not restricted to the main build today. If including photographs/images, we recommend using photocopies rather than originals.
