a new way to talk about life and end of life

Death literacy is something you acquire, while you’re busy doing life. That ‘something’ is knowledge that starts the minute you take the conversation public. Death literacy is about accepting and normalizing death— embracing the cycle of life.

Death literacy is at the heart of what D2KDUSA is all about. The term death literacy was coined by a team of pioneering researchers, including Kerrie Noonan, co-founder of The GroundSwell Project.

Becoming death literate is something you do for yourself, for your family and for your community, long before the end.
