The Pride Veterinary Medical Community is committed to acting to end racism. We recognize the systemic oppression of African Americans and we acknowledge that our silence can no longer be tolerated. We know that the time to end white silence is now. PrideVMC is committed to standing with black, brown and all people of color within our profession and the world at large. We commit to educating ourselves and our community, and to doing the deep work needed to end racism, discrimination, and brutality.
The first step is for all white members of our organization to step up and educate ourselves so that we can stand as true allies with our black colleagues. Please utilize the links listed below so that we can move forward with meaningful conversations and actions. This is our responsibility as an inclusive community to learn what we need to do and then manifest this as real change to end racism in our society.
