Statement of Commitment to Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Social Justice

Guided by principles of social justice, ASPPH is committed to dismantling racism and ending the cultural and structural conditions that enable racism in academic public health institutions. We acknowledge that this commitment is part of a vital continuum to tackle a long history of legally sanctioned racist and discriminatory practices, and a myriad of societal injustices. We strive to create an equitable and inclusive community that respects everyone, values differences, and stands up against acts of harassment and discrimination in all forms. This requires being intentional and authentic in acknowledging the long history of cultural and structural racism in the United States, along with other forms of discrimination that have shaped our organization, the schools and programs of public health we represent, and impacted the health and well-being of our communities and populations.

ASPPH has worked to create three documents to guide us as we become closer to who we want to be:
