The phrase, “a good death” has become more and more prevalent in the public conversations around death and dying. But in many ways, that phrase creates a narrow focus that excludes issues of justice that are tightly woven into death as they are into life. The Radical Death Series, starting on Saturday, October 17th, is a four-part series of conversations that will help widen our lens and broaden our scope when engaging in discussions around death and dying. Each month, we will center on one topic, including access to “a good death,” and the racial disparities within the death positive movement, the nuances of ancestral honoring, a session on the collective grief of this moment in history, and an application event where we discuss the inevitability of death, the denial of death, the “so-what’s”, and the “what’s next?” Look for more information soon on how you can join in on one or all of these conversations, led by Rev. Karen Hutt, Christin Ament, and Emily Stacken.
