We sent the following message to our supporters in the Baltimore, Maryland area last week:
As you may know, we’ve spent this summer planning how we can pass Maryland’s End of Life Option Act when the legislature returns to session in 2017. And now, we’re organizing the grassroots teams we’ll need to succeed next year.
I’d like to invite you to a meeting for supporters of medical aid in dying led by our Baltimore-based advocates. The meeting will be hosted by our Baltimore Action Team, which coordinates our strategic activities in the area. An action team is a local group of supporters who work to build support for end-of-life options in their community.
WHAT: Baltimore Action Team meeting and discussion
WHERE: Waverly Branch of the Enoch Pratt Library, 400 E 33rd St, Baltimore
WHEN: Saturday, September 24 at 10:15 a.m.
This meeting will give you the opportunity to meet other advocates in the area, share your personal stories, and find out what you can do to improve Marylanders’ control over their end-of-life care. You’ll also have the opportunity to join the Baltimore Action Team.
Joining our campaign as a member of the action team will allow you to have a close-up view of local activities and a voice in our strategy in the region.
I hope to see you there,
MD Legislative and Field Manager
