AKF stands with people of color

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Embracing a workplace culture that is characterized by diversity, respect and collaboration is one of the core values of the American Kidney Fund. We are outraged and heartbroken by the terrible injustices that are impacting communities of color. AKF has long been focused on fighting the health disparities that shorten the lives of too many black and brown Americans. The people we serve – those with and at-risk for kidney disease -- cannot truly have good health until they live in a nation where racism is eradicated. Tonight we are calling on our nation’s leaders to acknowledge and address the systemic racism these communities endure, and we are reaffirming our commitment to fighting on all fronts for the good health of all Americans.
