Following the tragic deaths of George Floyd and others,
and the public outcry about the manner in which they died, as well as the history of racism in our country, AACP reaffirms our commitment to foster an inclusive community, with diversity of thought, background, perspective and experience.
We also affirm our commitment to racial equality, equity and justice, as an embodiment of our core values of inclusiveness, integrity and excellence. As an organization dedicated to improving health and wellbeing for everyone, we support peaceful protests and positive action to combat racism in all forms and in all communities, and we strongly oppose violence by any group or individual.
AACP will continue to support our colleagues during this challenging time for our nation. Our students, faculty and pharmacy practice educators will work to deliver care to all communities, and will use research, teaching and learning to address disparities and inequalities that exist in the healthcare system and our society.
