Why We Need to Talk About Death

In our fast-paced culture, conversations around death and dying can often feel taboo or uncomfortable. Yet, these are topics that touch us all and shape our understanding of life itself.

At SGSCC, we believe it’s time to break the silence. That’s why we’re introducing Death Cafes—judgment-free spaces to explore your thoughts and feelings about life’s inevitable conclusion.

What is a Death Cafe?

A Death Cafe is a gathering where community members can discuss death openly and freely. It aims to eliminate the stigma around the topic of death, thereby enriching our lives today. This event is free of charge, open to the public, and facilitated to provide everyone an opportunity to share or listen.
