As a volunteer with Compassion & Choices, you’ll join thousands of dedicated supporters who want to transform the medical systems in this country and give people the options they want and deserve to chart their own end-of-life journey. Compassion & Choices is dedicated to improving care and expanding options for the end of life. Volunteers work diligently to build grassroots support for end-of-life liberty.
Action teams are a critical part of Compassion & Choices. Maryland has action teams in Montgomery County, Anne Arundel County, Prince George’s County and Baltimore City. They bring together and train other volunteers in their area to coordinate outreach efforts to local officials, and educate communities and health professionals. They are advancing municipal resolutions hosting educational forums, meeting with religious leaders, and deepening support in the medical and hospice communities. Maryland was one of 40 states where Compassion & Choices provided policy and technical assistance to state officials or their offices in 2017-2018.
