The American Academy of Nursing's (Academy's) mission is to improve health and achieve health equity by impacting policy through nursing leadership, innovation, and science. The Academy strongly believes that violence, discrimination, and racism have a direct impact on determinants of health, exacerbate health inequities, and can lead to long-term trauma. We strive to utilize nursing leadership, innovation, and science to promote policies that will achieve health equity.2021-2024 Strategic PlanDiversity and Inclusivity StatementStatement: Anti-Asian Discrimination is a Public Health CrisisReport Release: INL Critical Conversation on Health Equity and Racism
