In the summer of 2020, we witnessed protests in many cities around the world sparked by an incomprehensible act of racism and brutality in the USA. The COVID-19 pandemic has had a disproportionate impact in black and minority communities in the Americas, Europe and around the world. As nurses we see the devastating effects of systemic racism and prejudice in our communities and have a responsibility to educate ourselves and to use our voice to call for change.
Nursing Now is a powerful network of nurses who are advocates and activists, together we have a strong voice and stand united with all people who believe that black lives matter and support our network to advocate for systemic change in every society in the world where communities are marginalised.
This section provides links to resources including papers, articles, books and organisations to support you in exploring the topics of racism and discrimination. You will also find details of upcoming webinars.
