The ability to achieve end-of-life care that reflects our wishes and priorities, and to have access to a full range of options should be a universal human right.

We live in a nation that is a beautiful mix of cultures, traditions and faiths. What is right is ensuring that all people have the resources and tools they need to plan for an end-of-life experience that aligns with their values, priorities and beliefs. 

Our Grounding Principles

  • We acknowledge persistent disparities in all aspects of healthcare.
  • We are committed to EDUCATING and EMPOWERING everyone to make informed decisions so they can ADVOCATE for themselves and their loved ones
  • We work to increase awareness of the importance of end-of-life planning and care in both diverse and underserved areas.  
  • We strive to give people a stronger voice in their end-of-life care.
