Inviting:

Anti-Human Trafficking Migrant Workers Program of FCJ Refugee Centre, Migrant Workers Alliance for Change, and Migrant Rights Network:

Join us between 5pm and 8pm on Sunday, November 1st at Dufferin Grove Park to honour the lives of migrants that have passed away in Canada and around the world as a result of COVID-19 and unjust immigration laws.

We will gather to remember and celebrate migrants, refugees, workers, students, and undocumented people that feed, clean, build, care for kids sick and elderly, that are essential to our communities but excluded from status and rights, particularly those that have passed away. We will be there united in our call for full and permanent immigration status.

Day of the Dead is a very important celebration in the latinx community – dating back to Indigenous traditions centuries old. Latinx members of Migrant Workers Alliance for Change will build an altar  to commemorate the lives of the departed, where we wait for their annual visit with their favourite food, music, art, flowers and community.

Everyone is invited to join us on November 1st. Please bring any offerings to remember migrants that lost their lives Canada and for your loved ones.

This is a COVID-19 safe event. We will be physically distant. Wear a mask.

Celebración del Día de Muertos por #Statusparatodos 

Acompáñenos entre las 5:00 p.m. y las 8:00 p.m. El domingo 1 de noviembre en Dufferin Grove Park para honrar las vidas de los migrantes que han fallecido en Canadá y en todo el mundo como resultado del COVID-19 y leyes de inmigración injustas.

Nos reuniremos para recordar y celebrar a los migrantes, refugiados, trabajadores, estudiantes y personas indocumentadas que alimentan, limpian, construyen, cuidan a niños enfermos y ancianos, que son esenciales para nuestras comunidades pero excluidos de estatus y derechos, particularmente aquellos que han fallecido lejos de su tierra. Estaremos allí unidos en nuestro llamado a un estatus migratorio completo y permanente para todos.

El Día de Muertos es una celebración muy importante en la comunidad latinx, que se remonta a las tradiciones Indígenas con siglos de antigüedad. Los miembros latinxs de la Alianza de Trabajadores Migrantes por un Cambio construirán un altar para conmemorar las vidas de los difuntos, donde esperamos su visita anual con comunidad  comida, música, arte y flores favoritas.

Todos están invitados a unirse a nosotros el 1 de noviembre. Por favor traiga cualquier ofrenda para recordar a los migrantes que perdieron la vida en Canadá y para sus seres queridos.
