Request a Speaker

Donate Life Connecticut representatives and volunteers are always willing to speak about donation. There are many appropriate ways to discuss donation in a public setting, such as during:

  • elementary, middle school, or high school classes

  • teacher's conferences

  • driver's education classes

  • religious group meetings

  • staff meetings

  • civic and service group meetings

  • health fairs

If you are interested in having a DLC representative speak at your event, please contact us. Thank you.


This volunteer-based coalition believes that working together with a common voice is the best way to reach the goal of increasing the donor registry, which will inevitably impact the number of transplants that give new life and hope to people suffering from fatal illness or life threatening injury.


Donate Life Connecticut is dedicated to the purpose of public education and awareness for all Connecticut residents concerning the lifesaving benefits of organ and tissue donation and increasing the number of registered donors.
