We Speak Life

We Speak Life is a short documentary that seeks to spark conversations within the African American community about the importance of organ donation. 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 registrations within the African American community to give hope to those waiting for a second chance at life.

The film was funded by the California Endowment and produced by Donor Network West.
