Wednesday, January 29, 10:00am: Lobby Day for Medical Aid in Dying. Join the Northern Virginia Action Team of Compassion & Choices for our lobby day. Medical aid in dying refers to the practice of a terminally ill patient requesting a prescription from a physician that the patient can choose to ingest to bring about a peaceful death. Del. Kaye Kory will introduce legislation in the upcoming General Assembly session to legalize medical aid in dying in Virginia. The more people who participate in Lobby Day, the more likely we are to advance legislation in the 2020 session. Location: Pocahantas Building (900 East Main Street) in Richmond. The specific room will be announced soon. RSVP: Participants can register by sending an e-mail to CompassionChoicesVA@gmail.com. If you or your members have questions, feel free to call Cathy Casselman (260-602-9866, Action Team leader of Compassion & Choices NoVA) or Jud Richland (202-997-0255, Special Assistant to Del. Kory).
Virginia General Assembly. The 2020 Session is from Wednesday, January 8 through Saturday, March 7 in Richmond. With a Democratic House of Delegates and Senate, look for issues such as the ERA, common sense gun legislation, re-districting, LGBTQIA rights, health care, criminal justice reform, and more to finally be addressed. Indivisible Arlington needs people to help track legislation during the state session and to travel to Richmond to work with our Delegates and Senators.
2020 Election. On November 3, we will vote for a new President, all members of the House of Representatives, and a third of the Senate, including Senator Mark Warner.
