    Leave a Comment

    We invited our supporters in Vermont to a screening of How to Die in Oregon next week. Take a look at the email sent by our Vermont State Director, Linda Waite-Simpson:

    Friend,

    I’d like to invite you to a Putney film screening of How to Die in Oregon, an award-winning documentary that offers a moving portrait of what it means to use medical aid in dying. After the film, I’ll host a discussion on how Vermont’s medical aid-in-dying law is working for people across the state.

    Join fellow supporters to learn about what we can do to build support for improving access to our state’s end-of-life option.

    WHAT: Film screening of How to Die in Oregon and discussion of Vermont’s aid-in-dying law
    WHERE:: Putney Public Library, 55 Main Street, Putney, VT
    WEHEN: Saturday, April 16 1:00-4:00 p.m.

    Click here to RSVP for this event.

    This screening is an opportunity to meet your fellow advocates and community members to discuss the strategy for preserving and expanding access to the full range of end-of-life options. As we’ve learned in other states, providing meaningful access to the best end-of-life care is not accomplished by passing a medical-aid-in-dying law alone. It takes teamwork and organization, and we hope you will join us.

    How to Die in Oregon won the Grand Jury Prize for Documentary at the Sundance Film Festival in 2011 and depicts the process of using medical aid in dying, which has been authorized in Oregon for 18 years.
