We partner in solidarity with all in the fight against racism and police violence against Black persons. We recognize the impact that racism and bias have on Black women and families. We remain committed to helping to create an equitable, respectful, and safe health care environment built on mutual trust.
Racism is a public health issue. The impact of racism throughout our society contributes to risks in patient safety for Black women and all women of color, leading to health disparities and many other inequities. We must and will continue to fight for societal reforms and will continue our commitment to addressing issues of racial and health inequality.
