LLSA Event: Dia de los Muertos
All Day
Commons (2 tables)
Contact: Chris Esparza •
The Latinx Law Student Association invites you to celebrate Dia de los Muertos.

We will celebrate the lives of those we have lost in the Latinx community, those here at the law school, and those in our personal lives. LLSA will be building an altar in the Commons where we will gather, place offerings and flowers, eat food, and remember the lives of our loved ones. We will be constructing the altar as a group from 3-4 PM. At 4pm, we will hold a brief moment of silence to honor all those lost, followed by a celebration of music and food.
