Dia De Los Muertos: A Community Healing and Cultural Ceremony

Friends Outside joins Fathers & Families Coalition of San Joaquin County in support of community healing and cultural recognition at the Dia De Los Muertos ceremony November 2nd, 2011.

We invite you to this important event as community partners and members:

• Honor and recognize those who have lost their lives to violence.
• Create a space for healing and recovery from violence.
• Take a community wide stand for peace.

The ceremony will begin with a blessing at 4:00 PM at the Catholic Cemetery located on 719 Harding Way Stockton, CA 95205.

A procession will follow promptly at 5PM to Oak Park for a silent candlelight vigil and creation of a community alter. There will be free food, Cultural Dancers, Native American Drummers, Storytellers and a community healing activity.  Please feel free to disseminate widely!

For additional information please call Samuel Nuñez at (209) 941-0701 or by email at snunez@ffsj.org.
