NY: Join us for a Film Screening in Poughkeepsie

August 26, 2016

The following email was sent to Poughkeepsie-area supporters. Please feel free to join us at this event:


I’d like to invite you to a Poughkeepsie film screening of How to Die in Oregon, an award-winning documentary that offers a moving portrait of people accessing medical aid in dying.

As you know, our campaign to bring the option of medical aid in dying to terminally ill adults in New York has been more successful than ever this year. And now, we’re coming to the Hudson Valley to organize the grassroots teams we’ll need to succeed when the legislature goes back into session.

After the film, we’ll discuss our New York campaign, the Medical Aid in Dying Act being considered by the legislature, and what you can do to help pass this crucial legislation.

WHAT: Film screening of How to Die in Oregon and discussion
WHEN: Monday, August 29, 2016, 4-7:00 pm. Film begins at 4:00 p.m., discussion begins at 6.
WHERE: Greene Room #1, Poughkeepsie Public Library, Boardman Road Branch, 141 Boardman Road, Poughkeepsie

This meeting will give you the opportunity to meet other advocates in the area, share your personal stories, and find out what you can do to improve New Yorkers’ control over their end-of-life care. Light refreshments will be served.

You’ll also have the opportunity to help form the Hudson Valley action team. An action team is a local group of supporters who meet regularly and work to build support for end-of-life options. Joining our campaign as a member of the action team will allow you to have a close-up view of local activities and a voice in our strategy for the region.

If you’ve already seen the film, or you can’t make it for the start of the event, please feel free to join us for the discussion portion of the event at6:00 p.m.

I hope to see you there,
