Bring a candle, a photograph, or a memory to share. Tell us what dying with dignity means to you. And learn more about the campaign to pass New York’s Medical Aid in Dying Act. Join us if you believe that terminally ill New Yorkers deserve the same options that those in six other states now have: to ask for and receive medication that they can take at a time of their own choosing to end unbearable suffering at the end of life and bring about a peaceful death. Find out how you can help make the option of medical aid in dying a reality in the Empire State.Come raise a glass to remember our lost loved ones. This will be an informal gathering.
