It’s June, and that means it’s time to start celebrating LGBT Pride Month!
As you may know, Pride events attract thousands of people, many of whom express a strong desire for social change and justice. In fact, the aid-in-dying movement and gay rights movement are closely related, with some of the earliest aid-in-dying advocacy coming from communities most affected by the AIDS crisis.
Pride events are a great opportunity to share Compassion & Choices’ mission, and each year we prepare a toolkit to help volunteers recruit new supporters while enjoying the festivities.
The Pride-in-a-Box Toolkit is a one-stop shop that comes with a guide for organizing in the LGBT community, campaign materials, petitions, and resources to start the conversation with folks in your community about their end-of-life options.
Everyone is welcome at Pride events and anyone can use these resources! If you aren’t planning on attending pride events this year, feel free to forward this blog to someone who would find it useful.
Enjoy the celebrations!
