Our altar is honoring those who have died crossing the border. As a group, we believed this was dear to our hearts because we have either experienced this in our own families or we know of others who have lost loved ones. As we explain to the community our altar, they also have shared their experiences of losing their loved ones. We come together this evening to cry, to laugh, and to make conversation. I have learned so much about people and have listened in on conversations being discussed about tonight, alongside my colleagues. As the Dia De Los Muertos event comes to an end tonight, I hope to continue to meet people and ask them about their altars and what it means to them.
