You are invited to the  4th Annual Dia de los Muertos Tribute on Saturday, Oct. 5, 2024, at Union Park, 1801 Pennsylvania Avenue, in Des Moines. Held during Domestic Violence Awareness Month, the Tribute honors those lost to gender-based violence and serves as a beacon of hope and healing for Iowa communities. 

We invite the community at large to come together to remember the names, faces, and stories of loved ones lost too soon to violence. Attendees are encouraged to bring a photograph of their loved ones to honor their memory and share stories and the names of those who have departed us too soon. 

We hope you can be part of this meaningful Tribute as we unite against gender violence and work to create a world where everyone is safe and can thrive.
