Screenings of "How To Die In Oregon":

Saturday, July 8, 2017, 9:30 am -- at the Urbana Free Library, 210 West Green Street, Urbana

Saturday August 19, 2017, 1:00 pm -- at the Champaign Public Library, 200 West Green Street, Champaign

Here's a flyer for both showings, and one just for the Urbana showing.

Please join us for screenings of this fascinating and award-winning documentary.  The film follows several terminally-ill Oregon residents who are taking advantage of Oregon's wonderful aid-in-dying law, together with scenes from the successful 2008 campaign to establish the right to aid-in-dying in Washington state.  The film makes overwhelmingly clear what our movement is about and why it is so important.  If you've never seen it, don't miss these opportunities.  A discussion will follow each screening. 

Sponsored by the Death With Dignity Group of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Urbana-Champaign (deathwithdignity@uucuc.org), the Funeral Consumers Alliance of Champaign County, and Final Options Illinois.  Admission free.
