From event hosts:

Three queer/trans disabled death workers and organizers of color will hold a conversation about some of the narratives around death. We, and the people in our communities, live in a liminal space before death. We are not actively ‘dying,’ but our identities are exposed to violence that makes us closer to death. Through an exploration of this liminal space, this session will consider what exactly makes a life meaningful and worthy of legacy. How do we begin to build against ableist ideas of a meaningful life? How do we build against the capitalist idea that a life must be full of meaning and impact to be worthy of mourning.
