The ultimate mission of those involved in the “death positive” movement is to advocate for and acheive “a good death” which means death that is in line with one’s own individual values. The basic principle of a good death is to plan and prepare, allowing the dying person and their loved ones to come to terms with the inevitable. But in marginalized communities, this is not often the case. For some, violence and unexpected deaths are far too common. Tessa Love explores this issue for The Medium.
The When You Die staff is committed to bringing death back into our everyday conversations as an integral part of our human journey.
