In response to Dr. Tamika Cross’s encounter with bias and discrimination while aboard a Delta flight on October 9, over the past couple of weeks, we created a declaration to share solidarity with Dr. Cross and to acknowledge #WhatDoctorsLookLike.

Our statement is now published on Medium and this is an invitation for medical students and physicians around the country to co-sign. Please take a moment to stand up against intolerance, racism and bias by completing the form at the bottom of our letter so we can add your name.

Please share this petition widely.
