Death Café for Social Service Providers

Tuesday, October 29

6:30pm-8:30pm

339 15th Street, Suite 208
Oakland, CA 94612
A space for people who work in social services to have an open conversation about death and dying.

Death Cafés are events put on by an international network of volunteers with the objective “to increase awareness of death with a view to helping people make the most of their (finite) lives.”

Death Cafés are open, minimally facilitated discussion groups about death and dying with no agenda, objectives, or themes, and with no intention of leading people to any conclusion, product, or course of action. Tea and cake are always provided!

This particular Death Café event will be geared towards people who work in social services (outreach workers, case managers, etc.). Even though service providers work with socially marginalized populations and death is a common occurrence for us, there is often not space in the workplace to talk about issues of death and dying. This event will be an open space for people who work in social services to talk about death and dying with others who may have similar experiences.
