What is the leading nonprofit organization(s) devoted to promoting legalization of assisted suicide in US states?

I am specifically interested in New Jersey, but suspect that most relevant nonprofits are national. Wikipedia lists a whole bunch of them, but I would like to find the most reputable and active in working to change legislation and legalize assisted suicide for the terminally ill. I am not interested in organizations whose primary purpose is to assist individuals who want to end their lives.

Best answer: The one I gave money to is Compassion & Choices, which works nationwide primarily at the state level towards legalization.

Best answer: Probably Compassion & Choices, founded from the former Hemlock Society.
