CFAS Anti-Racism Statement

Dear members,
 
The Canadian Fertility and Andrology Society (CFAS) acknowledges that racism has permeated institutions like education, health care, and justice for centuries. Racism leads to severe consequences including health disparities. The CFAS denounces anti-Black racism and all forms of racism, prejudice and oppression. We stand in solidarity with those in our communities who have suffered or continue to suffer the consequences of racist behaviours and structural racism. We commit to confronting racism by opening up conversations to identify ways to address unconscious bias and support efforts to educate on and eliminate systemic oppression.
 
Sincerely,
 
The CFAS Board of Directors
