YORK, Pa. — Latino and immigrant organization CASA in Action is encouraging the Latino community to make sure their voices are heard in the upcoming election.

On Saturday, Oct. 29, the organization hosted a Día de los Muertos celebration in York that also aimed to encourage the community to vote.

“It's really important for Latino voters to get out there and have their voices heard," Rosemary Cintron, Pennsylvania voter engagement manager for CASA, said. "The concerns that are a part of their community, it's something that we're passionate about, and we want to make sure that everybody has the opportunity to make an impact in their community.”

Guests at the celebration could enjoy traditional Latin American food, music and folkloric arts and crafts.

Participants also collaborated to build a community altar that celebrates the lives of their departed loved ones.

Día de los Muertos is observed on Nov. 1 and 2 every year.
