Racism in health care: An apology to Indigenous People and a pledge to be anti-racist

We're deeply saddened to learn about the remains of 215 children discovered in a mass unmarked grave on the grounds of the former Kamloops Residential School. We express our deepest condolences to Chief Kukpi7 Rosanne Casimir and the Tk'emlúps te Secwépemc Nations and to all residential school survivors and their families, who have carried this trauma for so long, and who continue to confont casual and institutional racism on a daily basis.

We grieve with you, and recommit to playing an active role in addressing anti-Indigenous racism in the healthcare system.
