Networking with supportive organizations and individuals
Living with Dignity creates networks by establishing relationships, exchanging information and collaborating with organizations and individuals who share our concerns and objectives. We join forces with men and women in politics and health care, defense groups for people living with disabilities and any organization interested in working together in a spirit of solidarity.
Participation in the public debate
Living with Dignity takes part in the debate in the public square by means of an active exchange with health professionals and other citizens who are determined to make a difference in their communities. We bring to light the various issues related to the practice of euthanasia and physician-assisted suicide. We promote positive models of quality end of life care in our communities. We celebrate the contribution of organizations and families who accompany the terminally ill.
Research and collection of information
Living with Dignity takes a grassroots approach to identifying concerns related to death and dying in our society. We keep abreast of up-to-date information in order to promote high quality care at the end of life without euthanasia (also called "medical aid in dying"). Means we use to gather information include literature searches, sharing of information between organizations, identifying effective and exemplary models of palliative care, monitoring the media, etc.
Public awareness campaigns
Living with Dignity believes there is an urgent need to raise awareness in the public square and the media about issues related to euthanasia and assisted suicide, as well as about the different palliative care services available to the terminally ill. We carry out our educational program through informative documents, public debates and other events, and public awareness campaigns. We also collaborate with existing networks and concerned individuals.
Living with Dignity recognizes the necessity of developing and maintaining community services that emphasize compassion, preserve the dignity of all human life, and support the dying and their families. We understand that the most vulnerable, their families and loved ones are the most directly threatened by the legalization or decriminalization of euthanasia and assisted suicide.
