A short documentary film that seeks to spark conversations within the Black community about the importance of organ and tissue donation.
About this event-
African Americans make up one of the largest group of minorities in need of an organ transplant in the United States, yet only 39% have registered as organ donors.
The film showcases African American Donate Life champions impacted by donation from a myriad of backgrounds and experiences, while candidly unpacking the issues of lingering mistrust in healthcare institutions in the African American community. As the first content offering of its kind, Donor Network West has the opportunity to amplify this important film as a platform for igniting conversations and driving donor designations within the African American community to give hope to those waiting for a second chance at life.
