The American Academy of Nursing (Academy) stands with those across the country calling for action to change structures and policies that have enabled and permitted senseless violence to occur. Violence, discrimination, and racism have a direct impact on determinants of health, exacerbate health inequities, and can lead to long-term trauma.The Academy and the American Nurses Association support the urgent need for social justice to address prevalent racism and discrimination against communities of color.
Throughout the coronavirus pandemic, the Academy's requests and focus has been centered on the following requests: (1) Protect our most vulnerable populations; (2) Support nurses and healthcare providers; and (3) Increase access, scale, speed and accuracy of testing.
