The ramp leads to an open side doorway with an overhead sign "Assisted Suicide." Their head is turned left to look at the front of the building, where a long flight of steps juts out into the sidewalk. The door is closed at the top of the steps, and there is an overhead sign  "Suicide Prevention Program."  TEXT: Saturday, July 16, from 2 PM to 3:30 PM on Zoom
