Dia de los Muertos liveblog pt. 1

There are lots of different people here looking at all the different altares. It’s interesting to see everyone’s interpretation of this year’s theme: those who build bridges not walls. There are calls for social justice and action for a range of issues. Some are LGBTQ+ equality, deportation, military service, community issues, and many more. My favorite interpretation of the theme was the Amnesty International altar. Amnesty International aims to build bridges across different nations, and stands in solidarity with those who are being oppressed. By honoring some of the people who have died in other countries, we build a bridge between the past and the present, and use their stories to continue fighting for justice.
