The State Fair is a wonderful summertime rite of passage in New York, and Compassion and Choices is going to be there. We’ll be manning an information table at the New York State Fair in Syracuse for the full two weeks of the fair. That’s a long time, so we’re looking for any and all volunteers to help greet visitors to our booth and get their signatures on our petition. We can’t do this alone, so whether you can join us for an hour, a day, or longer, it would be much appreciated!
Our goal this year is to get 5,000 signatures on our petition to let the New York State legislators know that medical aid in dying for terminally ill New Yorkers who request it is a priority for their constituents and the state of New York. The opposition is loud against this proposal, and we need to make our voices heard throughout 2017.
If you would like to find out more about volunteering or how you can help, please email NYEvents@compassionandchoices.org. Or just stop by if you’re in the Syracuse area at the end of the summer. It would be great to see you!
