"Our colors - blue and green - have not yet had as much time to catch on as colors for other health care causes have," says Ann Rayburn, RN, senior manager of professional education for the AOC.
"We are encouraging supporters to wear blue and green on April 17. Our long-term goal is that one day the public will instantly associate the color combination with organ donation." Additional, more spectacular promotions are planned to drive home the color association, Rayburn says. "We are lighting up the entire state on April 17 at several Alabama landmarks you can't miss, Rayburn says. "This is a very popular and quite touching event for everyone in the donor community," Rayburn says. "What we hope this Donate Life Month will do is help people connect with the idea that, in their loss, if a loved one is a donor then the family may have some positive element to hold on to during a difficult time," Rayburn says.

Ann Rayburn, senior manager of education with Alabama Organ Center, said the center encourages people who wish to donate their organs after their death to have a conversation with family members about their wishes.
Dialysis can be done for kidney patients waiting for a transplant, but there's no equivalent treatment for other organs, and Rayburn said the wait can be too long for some people.

Ann Rayburn, senior manager of professional education for the Alabama Organ Center, said the disparity is not a result of African-Americans donating in numbers lower than their share of the population.
"You can go to an African-American church, and everybody knows somebody who's been on dialysis," Rayburn said. "It's that prevalent." Among those who do hesitate to register as donors, many are motivated by one of two concerns, Rayburn said. A significant number of people believe that organ donors get substandard care in emergency departments, because doctors are anxious to recover donor organs; others believe their faith bars them from donating. Some level of mistrust in the black community may be related to the infamous Tuskegee syphilis experiments, in which federal researchers, even into the 1970s, misled and failed to treat African-American subjects with syphilis. But Rayburn said mistrust in the medical establishment is cited as a reason for not donating by people of all races. The truth, Rayburn said, is that emergency departments contact organ banks only after life-saving efforts have been exhausted, and most major religions explicitly allow donations or take no position on the matter.
