I am here to reimagine...

Regardless of our race, gender, religion, location, and privilege - dying is not an option. But how we access safe, culturally-sensitive support and care is.

The mission of PAUSE is to create spaces that produce safe, culturally-specific, and expert-informed grief and end of life resources serving Communities of Color. Regardless of our race, gender, religion, location, and privilege - dying is not an option. But how we access safe, culturally-sensitive support and care is. No matter who you are, death and loss are universal and an inevitable part of life. However, the rise of social unrest and COVID-19 have highlighted a key part of dying that we haven’t acknowledged widely before now: there is inequity in the way we die. Generalized grief resources are not centered, specific, or thoughtful enough to be useful for people in communities experiencing death due to racially-motivated violence or diseases prevalent in underserved communities. This is a critical gap that must be addressed.
