In light of this moment, we feel compelled to speak up – for silence is dangerous. The Hospital Educator and Academic Liaison (HEAL) Association shares in the wide range of emotions related to racism and social injustice across North America.  Acknowledging the history of systemic racism in our schools and our hospitals is a vital step to being a part of the change. Our responsibility as educators is to actively fight racism with knowledge and action. Welcoming communities of color, listening to others’ voices, celebrating our diversity and pushing for equity are our duties. We are fully committed to continuing the dialogue, fighting for what is right and speaking up for our marginalized neighbors. We will continue to listen, to be open, and to listen again. We are more beautiful and much stronger together.
