Statement on Diversity, Equality, and Inclusion

In her Presidential address at the APTA Component Leadership Meeting, APTA President, Sharon Dunn, had this to say regarding the current events of our country. 

“There is nothing healthy about racism. It’s a disease of the heart and mind that has infected not just people, but customs, systems, and laws. There is no vaccine. We must be the cure.”

The APTA Alabama Board of Directors stands firmly behind this message and echoes this statement. APTA Alabama will continue to work to ensure that black members are treated equally and with respect. We will continue to work toward DEI (Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion) in all aspects of APTA Alabama and to make sure that all member voices are heard.
