First Exposures’ ofrenda, Seeds of Change, stands as a living tribute to the ancestors, artists, and activists who have sown the seeds of wisdom, love, and freedom in our collective garden. Just as seeds planted in fertile soil flourish, their legacies continue to bloom within our hearts and spirits.

Our altar invites you to reflect, to share stories, and to plant a seed in dedication to an ancestor- whether they are a family member, friend, or revolutionary- who continues to support your growth. These perennial flowers, all native to the Bay Area, symbolize our ancestors' everlasting impact in our lives. Together, we celebrate in honor of them.
