With multiple local groups, Compassion & Choices is active in Illinois, and now, a death-with-dignity bill is being considered in your legislature this session! Click the Contact Your Elected Officials box to personalize a letter to your state representatives asking them to support death with dignity.

Our Chicago team of activists hosted a Compassion & Choices booth at the national Aging in America Conference this year. They also held a National Healthcare Decisions Day event featuring Professor Lisa Anderson-Shaw, who served on the drafting committee for the new Illinois POLST (Physician Orders for Life Sustaining Treatment).
