At this critical moment in history, the American Veterinary Medical Association emphasizes its commitment to diversity, inclusion and tolerance, and calls upon all institutions, public and private, to actively commit to anti-racism, justice, and equitable treatment of all people.
In the simple words of our AVMA Code of Ethics, we "reject all forms of prejudice and discrimination."
On behalf of the AVMA and its members, we reaffirm our commitment to doing all that we can to eliminate racism, sexism, and any other barriers that would deny any individual of their right to health, safety, justice and economic opportunity.
The AVMA stands with the Black community — now more than ever.
