As of April 2016, there is a mailing list of close to 50,000 supporters across the state of New York, with thousands of Lower Hudson Valley citizens who signed a petition or otherwise expressed their support for an aid-in-dying law in New York. However, our email list (which we’re using for outreach) is smaller—under 2,000 people. As you tell your friends and family about this cause, we expect our LHV numbers to grow.

State Campaign Leadership
Since Corinne Carey was hired in summer 2015 as NYS Campaign Director of Compassion & Choices, the campaign to pass legislation authorizing medical aid in dying in New York has really taken off. Corinne and her team travel daily to different communities across the state of New York as well as the government offices in Albany to educate, inform, and recruit supporters.
Amanda Cavanaugh is Corinne’s right hand and she is our volunteer liaison.
