Consolidated 2012 Annual Report
When I tell people we are shifting our efforts to New England, they get very excited. It is easy to marginalize accomplishments in the Death with Dignity movement because state-level reform has occurred in only two states. The reality is in 15 short years, we've achieved policy reform in two states and won a monumental case in the U. S. Supreme Court. Social movements are slow and ponderous behemoths, and change is wrought by lurching forward in a lumbering fashion.
Opponents to change always try to stop progress, but the momentum we've started in New England will not be stopped. Death with Dignity will become part of the national conversation, to that end we strive.
Defend dignity. Take action.
You are the key to ensuring well-crafted Death with Dignity laws for all Americans. With your financial and volunteer help, the Death with Dignity National Center, a 501(c)(3), non-partisan, non-profit organization, has been the leading advocate in the death with dignity movement. Member contributions helped us pass a new Death with Dignity law in Washington, defend the Oregon law, and provide education and outreach programs for the vitality of the death with dignity movement.
