Esperanza Peace & Justice Center invites community members to send us scanned copies of photos of their beloved family members and friends to add to the altar—especially those they wish to remember in 2020, when so many have died due to the pandemic. The community ofrenda will be on exhibit until Sunday, Nov. 8, 2020. Everyone is invited to stop by and visit this outdoor ofrenda while practicing social distance and wearing masks.
