Compassion & Choices advocates are making great strides toward passing a Death with Dignity bill in the New Jersey legislature.
There is strong momentum for death with dignity in the state. A bill passed a key legislative committee in February. And a March poll showed nearly two-thirds (63%) of New Jersey voters support death with dignity, both as a personal option and as legislation. With Compassion & Choices supporters’ and organizers’ strategic work, the bill is gaining support from community and faith leaders. Join our local volunteer team to ensure we have the strength to overcome the opposition and empower all New Jerseyans with every end-of-life option!
