Grief Awareness Day in Washington, D.C. 

"Grief Doesn't Have to Be Dark"


Grief Awareness Day in Washington, D.C. is a day dedicated to acknowledging, understanding, and supporting those who are navigating the journey of loss and grief. Our theme for this inaugural event is "Grief Doesn't Have to Be Dark," highlighting the importance of hope, light, and community in the grieving process.


About the Event

Grief Awareness Day is a unique opportunity to come together and recognize the many facets of grief. It is a day to honor loved ones, share stories, and find solace in the company of those who understand. We believe that while grief is a deeply personal experience, it is not one that must be endured in isolation. Through this event, we aim to shed light on the journey of grief, showing that it can be a pathway to healing and growth.

Participation in Grief Awareness Day is open to all. Whether you are currently experiencing grief, supporting someone who is, or simply wish to learn more about the grieving process, we welcome you with open arms.

Why Wear White?

White symbolizes purity, peace, and new beginnings. By dressing in white, we collectively embrace the theme that "Grief Doesn't Have to Be Dark." It serves as a visual reminder that even in the midst of loss, there are possibilities for light, hope, and a brighter tomorrow.
