Organize: to end the organ shortage

I don't know much about this (relatively new) organization,,  but I like their slogan: It's hard enough to survive a transplant, people shouldn't have to survive the waiting list too.

And Judd Kessler is their resident economist, so they're off to a good start.

They say: "Organize and its partners are doing whatever we can to register more donors, and are trying to build a system that makes it as easy as possible to do so."

"Organize is committing to fix this.  Here’s how:

  • Streamlining the registration process to make it easier to enroll as a donor.
  • Creating more entry points to enroll as a donor.
  • Building tech solutions for state-registries to share information more easily.
  •  Supporting academic research around the registration process, and learning best practices for different audiences.
  • Empowering patients and their families to take part of the registration process."
