National Multi-Ethnic Awareness Month
Aug. 1, 2021
National Multiethnic Donor Awareness Month takes place each August and is a time dedicated to saving and improving lives in diverse communities by advocating for those awaiting a lifesaving transplant and by creating a positive culture for organ, eye and tissue donation. 75% of people waiting in for a lifesaving transplant in the greater New York City area are people of color. Because of this, the initiative focuses on healthy living habits that may prevent the need for an organ transplant while also raising awareness about the power of donation to save and heal lives in multiethnic communities.
