C&C Observes Day of Gratitude
November 19, 2015, was our first ever Day of Gratitude, in honor of Brittany Maynard’s birthday. Because Brittany shared her story and touched the lives of millions of people, more than half of the states introduced aid in dying legislation in 2015.
This is an unprecedented amount of support and we are so grateful to Brittany and the more than 200 legislators who have joined in this movement.
When Brittany died there were only four states that allowed a terminally ill individual the option of Medical Aid in Dying. As of 2022, there are now 11 states. Brittany’s story continues to make a significant impact on this movement.
