With June 6 just around the corner, we are in a make-or-break moment for our movement. What we do now will determine whether Canadians have meaningful access to their right to a peaceful death for years to come.
In a new video on our website, DWDC CEO Shanaaz Gokool speaks to the greatest threat to patient-centred legislation for physician-assisted dying: well-funded special interest groups seeking to build a wall of red tape that separates you from your right to die with dignity.
Watch the video below to learn more about why we need you to Voice Your Choice today for new laws that embrace the spirit of the Supreme Court’s decision in Carter v. Canada.
Want to act right away? Here are three things you can do now to defend access to compassionate choice at end of life:
- Every voice counts. Use DWDC’s Email-a-Rep tool to send a powerful message to your local MP, to the federal ministers of Health and Justice, and to the Prime Minister’s Office. Once you’re done, send the link to 10 friends!
- Contribute to the cause. Your generous contributions give us the resources to continue to meet with lawmakers and engage with Canadians. We know our work does not end on June 6, and we are committed to fighting for the rights of all Canadians to have reliable access to a peaceful death for decades to come. Donate today!
- Sign up to volunteer. Volunteers are lifeblood of our movement. Find out how to lend your time and talent to DWDC, or join a chapter where you live.
