Pharmacists United for Truth and Transparency considers equality for all people to be the utmost priority. Pharmacists, like other medical providers, take an oath based on primum non nocere - ”First, do no harm.” PUTT does not condone and will not stand for actions that leave communities of color marginalized, diminished, brutalized, or feeling their lives are somehow less valuable than someone else’s.
The senseless and tragic deaths of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, Tamir Rice, and far too many others have forced our nation to confront certain critical issues that belie the words of our founders in the Declaration of Independence: the inviolable right of all people, regardless of color or creed, to freely - and safely - live their lives.
As caregivers and advocates, we will continue to fight for the rights of patients and their community pharmacies. We are pharmacists united with our communities - for truth, transparency, health, safety, and well-being.
