Mission Statement

Compassion & Choices (C&C) is a nonprofit organization that works nationally to improve care and expand choice at the end of life. C&C envisions a society in which everyone has a full range of options that provide for comfort, dignity and control at the end of life. We engage our mission through three main pillars of service: end-of-life consultation, educational programs, and legislative/legal advocacy.

Description

In June of 2016 the End of Life Option Act, California’s medical aid in dying law (similar to Oregon’s Death with Dignity Act) went into effect. This law allows terminally ill, mentally capable adults in California to request aid-in-dying medication from their doctor to bring about a peaceful death.

C&C is seeking volunteers in California with a commitment to improving care and expanding choice at the end of life for our California Access Campaign, an educational program focused on informing Californians about their end of life care options.
