We Cry Justice – Chapter 13: Pray for the Dead, Fight for the Living
Pray for the Dead Fight Like Hell for the Living was inspired by a famous quote by Mother Jones, a prominent union and community organizer in the early 1900’s. It is also a piece meant to be used in community rituals to lift up leaders and movement family who have died and whom we want to remember. In connection to this art poster, Leonina (Rev. Leo) created this Ancestral Altar How to Guide to be used in observance of Dia De Los Muertos/ Day of the Dead.
