Setting up our Altar!

Here is the altar that my group set up before the encuentro. The theme of our altar is commemoration of those who have died as a result police brutality and violence at the border.

We have decorated our altar with flowers, tea light candles, water, and photos of the painfulness at the border, We did not include any photos of victims who have passed, but rather general photos of such events, to respect families who have lost loved ones whom we don’t have permission from to portray.

Other Altars at the event are commemorating similar topics. This is likely because of the movie about the murder victims in Juarez that we saw in class, which showed just how unjust or ineffective the system can be.
