About this Death Cafe

Our aim at the Clinton Death Cafe is to provide a friendly, relaxed, and, hopefully, fun environment for people to talk about and explore issues surrounding death and end of life, without an agenda, judgment, or criticism.

            There's no obligation to speak: you can listen to what others have to say while you sit and enjoy cake and tea!
