February 1st marks the start of Black History Month. Every year, ConnectLife celebrates Black History month by sharing stories celebrating members of the black community.

This year in 2021, the Association for Multicultural Affairs' (AMAT's) African American Work group worked together to curate stories highlighting members of Divine 9 sororities and fraternities with their  connections to organ, eye, and tissue donation. These historic organizations pride themselves on serving their communities, with many advocating and educating about the importance of organ and tissue donation.

Follow ConnectLife on social media to help us celebrate Black History Month. You can join us by posting these amazing stories throughout this month using hashtags #AMATBlackHistoryMonth #Divine9 #WeConnectLife
