    El Dia de los Muertos (the Day of the Dead) Although is marked throughout Latin America, Dia de los Muertos is a Mexican celebration, is a day to celebrate, remember and prepare special foods in honor of those who have departed. On this day in Mexico, the streets near the cemeteries are filled with decorations of papel picado , flowers, candy calaveras (skeletons and skulls), and parades.

    This program is sponsored by the Multicultural Center, Late Night and Campus Ministries! 

    This year, the event will include an educational aspect about migration courtesy of students involved in the Kino Border Initiative.  

    If you are a faculty or staff member who took a trip to the Kino Border Initiative and would like to help spread the word about migrants or you would like to receive information, please email megan.steinmetz@scranton.edu!
