Día de los Muertos is a day of celebration that combines traditions from ancient Aztec, Spanish and Mexican cultures. Each year on this day, we not only honor the passing of souls, but celebrate the part of the human experience that unites us all - death.
2023 DIA on Día marks the 10th Anniversary of the Día de los Muertos concert to benefit Easterseals Lonestar and help those with disabilities live more independent lives. On this day of Diversity & Inclusion Awareness, we strive to promote the INCLUSION of all throughout our city.
People with disabilities and BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) are often not presented with the same opportunities in our society. Instead of being valued for the different attributes they bring, they can be perceived as “others” and excluded.
Sometimes it is a physical exclusion – people with disabilities don’t have accessibility to many of our buildings and outdoor spaces.
Sometimes is it a societal exclusion from jobs, clubs, equal pay and equal access
Let's celebrate an inclusion of all into an equitable society. IT ALL STARTS WITH AWARENESS
