Compassion & Choices, the organization that helped bring Death with Dignity to Oregon, Washington and Vermont, is ready to do the same in California.

Learn about the law, its history and how you can become involved locally. Compassion & Choices supports, educates and advocates for the expansion of individual choices at the end of life.

We are hosting two information sessions Thursday: from 4:15 to 5:15 p.m. and 5:45 to 6:45 p.m. in the West Faulkner Gallery of the Santa Barbara Central Library, 40 E. Anapamu St.
