NBOME’s Stance on Injustice and Racism

June 2, 2020

We stand with you as we bear witness to the unjustified deaths of black Americans at the hands of systemic racism running rampant in our nation.

George Floyd
Breonna Taylor
Ahmaud Arbery

Just a few of the names—among so many more—whose shocking and senseless deaths have left our communities reeling and enraged.

We are with you.

As our nation continues to endure this global pandemic, we reflect on the inequalities that remain alive and well in America. This civil unrest has yet again helped bring to light a long-overdue conversation that we will continue to have with you, using our platform to speak of love, support, respect, and community. While peaceful protesters search for answers, we continue our belief that empathy for one another can fuel positive cultural change.

We support you.

We refuse to stay silent when innocent lives are sacrificed in the throes of senseless brutality. In line with our mission to protect the public, we choose to speak out against hate, violence, and injustice against all people. We must all rise together to address these issues as we build a framework for future generations, founded on trust, equality, and support for our fellow human being.

We stand together.

We call on everyone within the osteopathic medical community to help heal not just the body, but also the heart of our very broken nation.
