Colorado is Ready for The End-of-Life Options Act

The 2016 End-of-Life Options Act, modeled after Oregon’s Death with Dignity Act, would allow mentally competent, terminally ill adults in Colorado the ability to request a prescription from their doctor to help them achieve peaceful death. Hearings for both chambers have been set for the first week in February, and we need supporters like you in attendance to pass this vital legislation.

RSVP to join us for these important hearings by clicking below:

Join on February 3, for the Senate committee hearing by clicking here.

Join on February 4, for the House committee hearing by clicking here.

It’s a crucial opportunity to build support with face-to-face interactions and personal testimonies. It’s impossible to overstate the resonance of personal testimony when appealing to lawmakers.

I you are unable to Join us for the hearing, your elected representatives still need to hear from you. Click here to send a letter to your elected official, urging them to support the end of life option act in their legislative body.
