Who We Are
The Death with Dignity Political Action Fund is a 501(c)(4) organization affiliated with the Death with Dignity National Center, and is responsible for the defense of the Oregon and Washington Death with Dignity laws and the promotion of Death with Dignity initiatives in other states.
The Death with Dignity Political Action Fund works within the political system to change public policy, thereby improving the dying process for all Americans. Most recently, we led the way to the successful passage of the Washington State Death with Dignity Act in 2008.
We're backed by a national base of individuals dedicated to our mission. Many decide to support the Oregon Death with Dignity Political Action Fund after experiencing a loved one's difficult death, for their own peace of mind, or due to a profound belief in choice at life's end.
Please join us as we work to empower terminally ill patients and fight for their rights through lobbying, as well as legislative, electoral, and ballot initiatives around the country. Together, we can realize our vision of a future where expanded end-of-life options include well crafted Death with Dignity laws, and terminally ill individuals are able to live life fully, right up to the end.
Defend dignity. Take action.
You are the key to ensuring well-crafted Death with Dignity laws for all Americans. With your financial and volunteer help, the Death with Dignity National Center, a 501(c)(3), non-partisan, non-profit organization, has been the leading advocate in the death with dignity movement. Member contributions helped us pass a new Death with Dignity law in Washington, defend the Oregon law, and provide education and outreach programs for the vitality of the death with dignity movement.
