Observed annually, National Minority Donor Awareness Week was created to increase awareness of the need for more organ, eye, and tissue donors, especially among minorities. Now in its 18th year, this special observance honors minorities who have been donors, and encourages others to register as donors and take better care of their health in order to reduce the number needing a transplant.
Minorities make up more than half of those currently on the organ donation waiting lists.
- The National Minority Organ Tissue Transplant Education Program (MOTTEP) was founded to educate and empower minority communities.
- The Association for Multicultural Affairs in Transplantation (AMAT) supports partners in the transplant field as they save and heal lives in diverse communities.
You have the power to SAVE Lives
We are asking you to register as an organ, eye and tissue donor today.
...and have a conversation with your family.
