We sent the following message to our New York City supporters this week:
I’d like to invite you to an event that Compassion & Choices is co-hosting with Fordham University’s Department of Sociology & Anthropology in New York City: a film screening of How to Die in Oregon, an award-winning documentary that offers a moving portrait of people accessing medical aid in dying.
After the film, we’ll discuss our New York campaign, the Medical Aid in Dying Act being considered by the legislature, and what you can do to help pass this crucial legislation.
WHAT: Film screening of How to Die in Oregon and discussion
WHEN: Tuesday, October 18, 5:30-8:30 p.m.
WHERE: Fordham University, Lincoln Center Campus, 12th Floor Lounge E. Gerald Corrigan Conference Center, 113 W 60th Street, New York, NY 10023
This meeting will give you the opportunity to hear Fordham University alumni react to the film, meet other advocates in the area, share your personal stories, and find out what you can do to improve New Yorkers’ control over their end-of-life care. Light refreshments will be served.
You’ll also have the opportunity to find out how you can get more involved in our campaign to authorize medical aid in dying in New York State.
I hope to see you there,
NY Campaign Director
