(Community Recognition Statement, 9 August 2022, Legislative Assembly, NSW Parliament)
Congratulations to Go Gentle for its outstanding contribution to changing laws across the country to give terminal people new compassionate end-of-life options. Established in 2016 by Andrew Denton to promote safe voluntary assisted dying laws after he watched his father die in pain and talked to others who faced or witnessed a loved one experience a bad death. The Go Gentle team provided politicians across the political divide with resources and information, and I pay special tribute to Andrew, Kiki Paul, Steve Offner and Frankie Bennet. Well done in making Australia a more caring place!
