AACPDM is Committed to Equity, Inclusivity, and Respect for Human Dignity

At the AACPDM we oppose disparities in medical care and systemic racism against Black people and other people of color. We will use our platform to elevate and amplify all voices around health disparities, including the voices of our individual members. We will be staunch allies with children and adults of color against systemic racism. We will do this not only because it is the right thing to do, but because medical research shows that it directly affects the health and wellness of people of color in our society, including those with and at risk for cerebral palsy and other childhood onset disabilities. We are committed to taking an active and conscious role in this process. We will use these principles to continue to fulfill our mission to promote excellence in research and services for the benefit of people with and at risk for cerebral palsy and other childhood onset disabilities.
