As an active burial ground, Historic Congressional Cemetery is well acquainted with death. But just what is a Death Café?
Death Café is a global movement facilitating thoughts and discussion about the often taboo subject of death, It’s a intimate informal gathering to discuss death while eating cake and drinking tea. It has no agenda other than providing a safe space to have an open ended conversation.
Please join us for our Historic Congressional Cemetery Death Café on Tuesday, November 29 from 5:30 PM- 7:00 PM. We are delighted to welcome back Liz Gregg, LICSW, the Director of Care Services at Capitol Hill Village, to moderate the event. Complimentary refreshments will be served but we ask that you consider brining a food or beverage item to share with the group. A $5 donation, to help cover event costs, is also welcome but not required. In addition, you do not have to use your real name to register, just a name you will recognize so we can check you in at the door.
Special Thanks to our partner for the Death Café, Capitol Hill Village.
