In the wake of the latest police killing of George Floyd following the recent killings of Breonna Taylor and Ahmaud Arbery, we say in the loudest and strongest possible terms that systemic racism and oppression of people of color is wrong and must be addressed.

As emergency physicians, we are committed to providing unconditional, quality care to all human beings who walk through our doors, regardless of race, ethnicity, religion, gender, sexual orientation, immigration status, physical ability, or any other aspect of our humanity. 

Unfortunately, as emergency physicians we know all too well that racism continues to persist in this country and manifests as a public health crisis. We see its devastating effects on our patients and on communities of color regularly.

We cannot be silent. We must aggressively champion justice and equitable care and treatment for everyone in this country, in our emergency departments and within our communities.
