Join us for the 3rd Annual Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) Tribute set for October 14, 2023.

This year's Tribute will be held at Union Park (between the Carousel and Rocketship slide) from 12-4 p.m.

We invite the community to join us in remembering the names, faces, and stories of victims who have lost their lives due to gender-based violence. You are welcome to bring a photograph of a loved one they would like to honor as we seek to elevate the stories and names of those that have departed us too soon.

If you have any questions, please contact Bleu Valladares (she/they), Legal Assistant for ICADV, at

Your support for our mission can provide a lifeline to Iowa families and communities impacted by intimate partner violence. The Tribute is the perfect opportunity to partner with our team where collectively, we can create an Iowa that is safe and free from violence for everyone.
