AMTA Board of Directors Statement


The events of this past week have affected all of us differently. We have heard expressions of fear, anxiety and despair. We’ve also heard thoughts of hope that the tragic and senseless killing of George Floyd and the unfolding aftermath will somehow bring about a long overdue and much needed change.

AMTA opposes all forms of racism and injustice. They are contrary to AMTA’s mission and our Core Value that “we are a diverse and nurturing community working with integrity, respect and dignity”. Racism and injustice rob people of these fundamental values.

AMTA leadership is here to listen, learn and to promote a culture that is inclusive and based on equality with our volunteers and membership across the country. We strive to live AMTA’s Core Values together as we work for the health and wellbeing of all.
