ITNS Statement on Racial Inequality



The International Transplant Nurses Society (ITNS) strongly stands on the foundation of equality for all. Equality for every human being, regardless of race, economic status, gender, age, creed, or sexual orientation is at the core of who we are.

The recent events surrounding George Floyd’s tragic death has enhanced the spotlight on the issue of racial inequality, specifically with the African American community. As nurses, we believe that the conversation must continue towards concrete action to address racial disparities and to assure that social determinants of health are actively and intentionally addressed within the United States’ healthcare system.
