In Memory

We, both as society and as individuals, are also grappling with an enormous loss. In our binational region,  over 1,000 people have died in the San Diego and Imperial Counties (combined) and over 3,400 people have died in Baja California. Each of these deaths represent a personal tragedy for the friends and families of the deceased as well as an incalculable loss for our society, as their ideas, talents, strengths, knowledge and personal histories are lost with the victims.

This project aims to help society and individuals cope with these losses, to honor the memory of our neighbors who have passed, to create a space for grief and to support the families of the deceased, while raising interpersonal awareness of the tragic toll of this disease.   

Day of the Dead Memorial Project

To honor the memory of the local victims of the coronavirus pandemic in our communities, we are creating day-of-the-dead altars in affected communities of San Diego County to honor the memory of the victims in these communities. Altars will be placed in Sherman Heights, National City, Chula Vista, and Playas de Tijuana (in Border Friendship Park). Learn More…
