Compassion & Choices' many efforts have gained support from several leading national organizations that represent the African American community. We work with these organizations to create resolutions. These are used as a community building tool to garner support and provide examples on how C&C can help their organization join the end-of-life care movement. Resolutions are also a call-to-action as they also outline how an organization is going to take action. Resolutions create accountability while measuring impact and engagement..
