Anti-Racism Resources

APTA Minnesota recognizes that racism is an enormous and insidious force in our personal lives, local communities and the broader world. After the murder of George Floyd, the local Twin Cities community and the nation experienced a renewed momentum for more concrete and authentic justice for folks who are Black, Indigenous and people of color.

After a community conversation about our role in dismantling systemic racism - in the field of physical therapy, healthcare in general, and in our own lives - our community requested a space to share resources for the largely personal work of learning about the history of race and racism, understanding bias and eventually dismantling systemic oppression. We share these resources as a starting point - knowing that we are all in a process of learning and unlearning, and in the spirit of a more equitable society for all.

 

In an effort to work together, we have created a Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee.  For more information or to join the committee please contact the co-chairs.

We encourage all PTs, PTAs and students to engage in dialogue, share perspectives and find community in our DEI forum.
