Volunteers have been the foundation of Death with Dignity for decades. In 1994, Oregon was the first state to pass a Death with Dignity law. It was passed through a ballot initiative, which means dedicated volunteers, like you, worked tirelessly to gather signatures, share their stories, and build awareness about this vital healthcare option. Since then, volunteers and advocates have been on the frontlines, helping to pass medical aid-in-dying laws in nine states, and the District of Columbia.

Over the years, volunteers and advocates continue to shape history by sharing their stories with friends, family, and legislators.

In this toolkit, you will learn how to:
1. Host a Meetup
2. Talk about Dying
