Florida Death with Dignity, a non-profit organization, is determined to raise awareness and fight for expanding end-of-life options in our state. It is time for the Sunshine State to join other U. S. jurisdictions having a death with dignity law, to make it possible for Floridians with a terminal illness to access the same autonomy and individual freedom while dying as they enjoyed while living. We educate the public, healthcare professionals, and legislative communities about patient-directed end-of-life care.

On January 10, 2020, an aid in dying bill, SB 1800, the Death with Dignity Act, was proposed for the very first time in Florida’s history. On March 14, 2020, the bill was indefinitely postponed and withdrawn from consideration as our state administrators and the legislature turned toward confronting the Covid-19 crisis.

A grassroots movement needs people to lead, organize, and educate others in order to grow and successfully achieve its goals. This effort is no different. If you believe Florida should have a medical aid-in-dying option and you are passionate about that, this organization needs you. If you have time and skills to help, contact us now to volunteer.
