Dia de los muertos is a cultural and spiritual celebration that brings together souls of our departure ones and the importance of having a quality of life for those celebrating this important Mexican festivity.
NWDC Resistance and partners invite you to celebrate with us and to call for an end to detentions and deportations, without forgetting the thousands of people still detained and separated from their loved one in detention centers throughout the nation.
At NWDC Tacoma, we call for this place to shut down and be replaced with a community space that commemorates life not incarceration.
As DHS, under outside pressures, holds a small group of people to write a “review” of the private detention centers they use to incarcerate people awaiting for a result on their deportation process, we ask you to join us and listen to the voices of those detained, the voices that DHS refuses to listen to while making any decisions about their lives.
Join us for a weekend of learning, sharing and working towards liberation of our communities of color.
There will be different events and activities happening with the help of members of the Tacoma community and beyond.
We remind our allies that this event will create a space of respect and intentantionally stopping any cultural appropriation from happening.
We also ask that everyone that attends participate fully and engage with us respectfully.
People in detention are waiting for us to take action, not only to observe without taking their call seriously.
A detailed agenda will be shared later on, keep an eye on the event page.
