Our 2020 Theme:

Dia de los Muertos is a time for remembering  the lives of those who have passed. This year we want to honor all the lives lost to the pandemic. The coronavirus has claimed more than 217,000 American lives through Oct. 13, 2020, an average of 800 deaths a day. This year’s theme is: Live! Mask up! Stand Up & Speak Up! / Vive! ¡Usa tu Mascara! Levántate y Alza tu voz! The Covid-19 pandemic has exacerbated inequities and highlighted that racism has always been a public health issue. Please remember to vote and turn in your ballot early. If you have a loved one who has passed from COVID-19 and would like to have them remembered on our community ofrenda, please email us a picture and their name to ecdlr.ddlm@gmail.com.
