AWHONN's Accountability, Belonging, and Culture Statement
As AWHONN continues to evolve, we are reminded of our commitment to support the nurses who strive to provide culturally proficient and gender-affirming care for all women, transgender people, non-binary people, birthing people, and newborns regardless of race, ethnicity, nationality, language, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, carceral state, dis/ability, citizenship, immigration status, income, or health insurance status. As an organization, we are adopting the following principles to guide us further toward our mission and vision.
We look forward to continuing to build a community based on these principles for generations to come.
