Welcome to the League of Women Voters.
The League of Women Voters is a trusted nonpartisan
volunteer organization. Our members do the hands-on work to
encourage an informed electorate and
to advocate for civic improvement.

Death with Dignity
|DATE:||Saturday, January 13, 2018
|TIME:||1:15 - 3:30 p.m.

There is no current provision in New York State law for medical
assistance in dying, and no provisions against abuse of the dying or for
protecting medical personnel. The panel will help us gain understanding
of the issue's pros and cons. League members will discuss and vote on
concurrence for a LWV New York State position to be used in deciding
whether or not to support particular legislation now and in the future
following the presentation.
This program is free and open to the public. All are welcome!
