Reception for Legislators & Supporters in Montpelier
In recognition of Legislators and Act 39 Supporters PCV hosted a reception at the Statehouse in Montpelier on May 16, the 5th Anniversary of the enactment of Vermont's End of Life Choice Law. This reception provided an opportunity for families and friends who have had experiences with Act 39 to tell their stories to the legislative and community leaders who made medical aid in dying possible in Vermont.
May 17-19: Three Theater Productions of...
A Finished Heart
PCV sponsored the presentation of an intimate one-act theater production as part of the recognition of the five-year anniversary of Vermont’s End of Life Choice Law (Act 39). We brought author, composer, and actor, Eliott Cherry here from Oregon to present his deeply personal story of love, life, and dying.
The hour-long performance brought audience members in touch with the universal experience of dying, amid humor and loving conversations at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation in Norwich, at the Shelburne Town Hall, and at Chandler Center for the Arts in Randolph.
Eliott's performances prompted conversations about caregiving, personal choices, and fundamental human connections. Each performance was followed by a discussion session, and PCV provided information about Vermont’s End of Life Choice Law (Act 39).
