Radical Nurses Collective stands in solidarity with protestors agitating all around the United States. We condemn state violence and call for nursing to engage in active, substantive, and good faith ways.
Mobilize your nursing identity to support antiracist efforts. Recognize that protests are a manifestation of hundreds of years of systemic and structural oppression. Work to unfuck that in downstream AND upstream ways.
To our BIPOC comrades, we see you. We acknowledge your pain. We are at the ready to support and collaborate.
White and not sure where to start?
- Do your own work to figure out your privilege and discomforts.
- Recognize the problem. Recognize it in all its manifold forms and locales. Name it without hesitation.
- Support bail funds.

Antiracist work is a nursing intervention. We can do this. We must do this. Together, we can make this different.
In solidarity, FOREVER.
