Communities of Color for Choices

Compassion & Choices values diversity and appreciates the benefits of having various perspectives and backgrounds among its supporters and staff. Communities of color often have the highest rates of illness, yet are least likely to discuss end-of-life preferences with loved ones or be aware of and take advantage of palliative care. The disparities that exist are the motivating factor for Compassion & Choices’ increased and targeted outreach to communities of color.

Compassion & Choices is committed to raising awareness by ensuring that all Americans are prepared for the inevitable end of life.
