CELEBRATING OUR 16th ANNIVERSARY!
Our local organization was founded in early 2002 when a small group of advocates of all ages and belief systems came together in the sanctuary of the First Unitarian Church of Honolulu to begin the long public education process we knew would be required to pass a Death With Dignity bill. Amazingly, we came within three Senate votes of passing a bill that very year. Read about that HERE.
We’ve stayed the course for 16 years and our success in keeping the issue in front of the public has brought us to where we are today. If you want to become involved and receive the latest news and action alerts, please opt in to our email list in the right column.

Since 2002, our work to pass a Death With Dignity law in Hawai`i has been supported by the generous assistance of the Death With Dignity National Center (DWDNC) in Portland Oregon. If you’re in a position to send a donation of any amount, please consider helping to fund our work. Either use the “Donate” button qt the right on our Web site (or below if viewing on a SmartPhone) or you may snail mail your check to our national partnering organization.
