Invitation to LRT Dia de Muertos Celebration – November 4th 2023

We invite you to the Latino and Latina Roundtable Annual Dia de Muertos Celebration on November 4th at Lopez Urban Farm (1034 W. Mission Blvd. in Pomona) from 1 – 5 PM.  A distinction of this Annual celebration is that we attempt to celebrate it, not out of any commercial or profit benefit (like some Dia de Muertos events have become), but is an effort to create a space where we can celebrate the cultural meaning of remembering and celebrating our loved ones and those who have contributed to our communities.
