Racial Inequality in Advance Care & End-of-Life Planning


It’s impossible to ignore the racial injustices and inequalities in both health care and end-of-life planning. As the top resource for all things end-of-life, we strive for transparency and advocacy.

Juneteenth, or Freedom Day, is a time for reflection, action, and real change. After our first observance in 2020, Cake will be observing Juneteenth as a holiday moving forward. This is one of the many ways we will remember our role within this fight for racial equality.

We encourage you to learn more about how to become a health care advocate and the realities of racism in the death and dying space.

This is in no way a complete list, but it’s a start.
