About this Campaign

This campaign is designed to raise awareness about kidney health and disease within Black communities.

Leveraging both in-person gatherings and digital platforms, the campaign aims to educate the community on the importance of kidney health and spotlight the significance of APOL1-mediated kidney disease, while promoting clinical research education and awareness. Through our grassroots efforts and sustaining engagement through our digital platforms, the campaign aims to engage, educate, and empower individuals to take proactive steps in managing their kidney health, thereby improving health outcomes and minimizing the incidence of kidney disease.

Subject: It’s about time we talk about kidney health

Hi [Name], 

As we strive to promote health and well-being within our communities, we wanted to bring attention to a critical issue that affects many individuals within Black communities: kidney health.

Did you know that the APOL1 genetic mutation that can lead to kidney disease disproportionately impacts the Black community? This condition requires our collective attention and action. Join us in raising awareness and supporting clinical research so we can make strides towards better understanding and managing this disease.

We are in this together.  If you or someone you know has been affected by kidney disease, check out our online community on NOWINCLUDED and share your story, or simply feel the support of your community.

Hi [Name],

We know how important it is to hear stories from people in your community, so: meet Brandon and Miyoshi.

Brandon has recently been diagnosed with APOL1 and is navigating the mental and physical effects of his diagnosis, while Miyoshi just celebrated a year since receiving a transplant after battling with kidney disease. 

We invite you to join us in supporting clinical research initiatives to raise awareness and understand more about kidney disease. Let’s continue to champion our health and celebrate the triumphs of individuals like Brandon and Miyoshi.

Together, we can pave the way towards a brighter, healthier future for all.
