Screenings of "How To Die In Oregon":
Saturday, July 8, 2017, 9:30 am -- at the
Urbana Free Library, 210 West Green Street, Urbana
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 (email@example.com), the Funeral Consumers Alliance of Champaign County, and Final Options Illinois. Admission free.
Friday, October 13, 2017 -- at the Chicago
Cultural Center, 78 East Washington
