Rosemont, IL, November 16, 2023 – In recent weeks, the United States has experienced an increase in religious intolerance, hateful rhetoric and violence. AAPM&R condemns racism and expressions of hate, bias and discrimination in all forms because it hurts our members, our patients and our communities. We strongly condemn Antisemitism. We strongly condemn Islamophobia.
AAPM&R remains steadfast in our commitment to equity and inclusion, and respect for human dignity. To our Jewish and Muslim members, as well as all others affected, please know that the Academy shares your grief and mourns with you over the loss of life, violence and hatred stemming from religious intolerance. We ask all of our members to join us in our commitment to these core values.
