Death Activism may seem a strange proposition. Why on earth would anyone want to engage activism around death? Isn’t activism challenging enough without bringing death into it? How is it even possible? It is possible– and important. It may sound like an oxymoron because death is the ultimate in passivity. A useful starting point in comprehending this dichotomy is the recognition of life and death’s interdependence. Defining death through scientific means is challenging; the exact point of death, difficult to determine.
"Activism consists of efforts to promote, impede or direct social, political, economic, or environmental change with the desire to make improvements in society and to correct social injustice."
