The Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) stands with Black Lives Matter and continues to support the vision of equal, inclusive, safe, and healthy future for all Americans. We acknowledge that it is our responsibility to support those who have been discriminated against, under served, and underrepresented. We also recognize racism as a public health issue, especially now when COVID-19 has caused people of color in the U.S. to experience higher rates of infection, hospitalization, and mortality, as well as significant economic hardship. We pledge to dedicate ourselves to learning more about the struggles of the black community, listening intently, and being true to the anti-racist values of our organization.
