We sent this message to our New York supporters this week:
I’m writing to ask you to join us for one of our most important events of the year. In just a few weeks, Compassion & Choices New York will have a booth at the New York State Fair in Syracuse.
Our presence at the fair will help us extend our message about the importance of expanding end-of-life options to a huge audience of fair goers — last year, almost a million people attended the fair! This is a wonderful opportunity for us, and we’re asking for volunteers to sign up for two-hour shifts to help distribute information at our table.
WHAT: Compassion & Choices table at the New York State Fair
WHEN: Thursday, August 25 to Monday, September 5
WHERE: New York State Fairgrounds, 581 State Fair Blvd, Syracuse Add your name to let us know you want to help at the New York State Fair, and we’ll be in touch with more information.
If you don’t know much about the fair, let me tell you, it’s a ton of fun! Each day, there are concerts, events, competitions and delicious food on the fairgrounds. If you’re willing to give us just two hours of your day, we’ll pay for your admission to the fair. And don’t worry about the heat, we’ll be tabling in the air-conditioned exhibition center.
As a volunteer, you’ll help distribute informational materials about our campaign to authorize medical aid in dying in New York. We’ll also have postcards ready so that fair attendees can express their support of aid in dying to their lawmakers on the spot.
Before the event, we’ll distribute a recording training video that will include a briefing on our campaign, answers to frequently asked questions, and details about the legislation.

Thanks for all you do,
