LEARN ABOUT MEDICAL AID IN DYING AT OUR MONTHLY MEETING

Karen Kallay will be the guest speaker at our virtual monthly meeting of the Hanover Democratic Committee at 10 a.m. on October 9. It is an important and timely topic. 

Currently, there is no option for Virginians with terminal illnesses to peacefully end their suffering under the guidance of medical professionals, despite strong support across the Commonwealth. A recent poll conducted by Christopher Newport University shows 7 in 10 Virginians, believe “mentally capable adults with a terminal disease who have less than six months to live should have the right to request and receive medication to peacefully end their life in consultation with an attending and consulting physician." Karen is a Fredericksburg resident with a long background in mental health and compassionate care. She has been an active voice for Medical Aid in Dying in Virginia.

From speaking out against fracked gas pipelines we don’t need, to voting against ratepayer ripoffs, to passing legislation that expands health care access, Sam has been showing up for communities across Virginia fighting for justice and he will continue lifting up voices across the commonwealth as Lieutenant Governor. He lives in his hometown, Roanoke, with his spouse, Layaly, and their three children. For more, visit sam4va.com.

Andria McClellan currently serves more than 125,000 Virginians in her role as a Norfolk City Council member, in addition to representing the 1.7 million people of the Hampton Roads region as the Chair of the Hampton Roads Planning District Commission. With more than two decades of business, non-profit, environmental and local government leadership experience, she is ready to put her knowledge, network and innovative ideas to work to help Virginia's economy and people recover from the COVID pandemic as the Commonwealth's first female Lieutenant Governor.
