Special program: Aid in Dying in Connecticut

In place of our March Humanist Conversations, we will host a special program on this year’s attempt to pass an aid in dying bill in Connecticut similar to the laws in Oregon and Washington states. Tim Appleton, the Connecticut Campaign manager for Compassion and Choices, will show the touching HBO documentary of “The Last Campaign of Governor Booth Gardiner“, which will be followed by a question and answer session.

Refreshments will be served.

Dinners: If you're planning to attend one of our social dinners or the annual brunch, please RSVP to editor@cthumanist.org, so we can give the restaurant a rough head count.

You can RSVP for the dinners and most HAC events via meetup.com.

Titles selected for our book discussions can be found in most local libraries or ordered from bookstores such as Barnes and Noble.

We're on Twitter and Facebook. HAC is a member of the Connecticut Coalition of Reason.
