Somos Familia will be celebrating Día de los Muertos in the Fruitvale neighborhood of Oakland. Sunday’s festival is themed Nuestras Raices: El Poder de la Comunidad (Our Roots: The Power of Community).
Somos Familia is creating an altar to honor our Latina/o/x LGBTQ ancestors as well as deceased community members who deeply affected our community. Read their stories below. This year’s altar will also feature a section for the 49 beautiful lives lost at the Pulse nightclub shooting in Orlando and the 23 transgender people murdered this year.
Come by our altar and grab information at our booth this Sunday in Fruitvale Plaza starting at 10AM. If you can’t be there in person, like us on Facebook to see photos, videos, and live updates from the event.
