Statement on racial equality, diversity and social justice
Plant-based health professionals UK is horrified by the recent murder of George Floyd in the United States. We give our full support to the Black Lives movement and call for an immediate end to systemic and structural racism in all its forms. We are committed to do our utmost to promote a fair and just society with equal access and opportunity for all. The SARS-CoV-2 pandemic has further amplified the entrenched racial and socio-economic disparities in health outcomes in the UK and abroad. We recognise that racism is a public health issue and we will be working to highlight racial inequality within the healthcare system. We are actively committed to eliminating the impact of racism, socio-economic status and all forms of discrimination on health outcomes. We will continue to work tirelessly in our demand for a fair, accessible and healthy plant-based food system and to make sure our content is accessible to all.
To our members and supporters, we ask that you hold us to account on these commitments.
