DEATH WITH DIGNITY: The Next Conversation
When:Saturday, October 25th, 10 AM - Noon,
Where: Flood Building, 870 Market Street, Room 1185
OWL member Fran Moreland Johns, author of DYING UNAFRAID, and veteran activist with Compassion and Choices, will lead us in considering: "Should physician-assisted dying be legalized in California?" Fran will share the experience of Oregon, which took this step 15 years ago, and Vermont which enacted it just over a year ago, and she will ask if California might become the next state to do so and what safeguards against abuse would be effective.
OWL SAN FRANCISCO
The Voice of Midlife and Older Women
870 Market Street, #905
Welcome to the San Francisco Chapter of OWL
A chance for you to be informed, involved, and empowered.
A place for friendship, learning, and advocating for women.
OWL is the only national membership organization to focus exclusively on critical issues facing women as they age. We work together to improve the status and quality of life for midlife and older women through national, state, and local networks.
Through groundbreaking reports and studies, testimony before Congress, national grassroots campaigns, powerful public education programs, and coalition work with other organizations, OWL is demonstrating that the needs of midlife and older women are the needs of a caring and just society. By speaking on their own behalf, OWL members are making important and lasting improvements in midlife and older women’s lives.
