Getting Started:

We recognize that right now our members, and our nation as a whole, are experiencing an unprecedented amount of pain, anguish, grief and frustration and the need for social justice. As part of the larger healthcare system, we too are facing the reality that there is still widespread oppression and an obvious divide in access to healthcare depending on the color of one's skin. The WANP recognizes that this has most disproportionately affected Black communities. We recognize this, we care about this and we want to be part of the solution. 


While the WANP does not claim to be experts on anti-racism in any way, we have compiled resources from our membership, our community and leaders in diversity training, anti-racism and social justice. We would like this to be a living document, and appreciate additional recommendations. If you have any recommendations that you would like to add, please do so by emailing 


We recognize that the WANP has not had a very diverse board of directors, and that Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) populations have not had equal access to holistic healthcare. We are committed to further educating our board members on diversity and inclusion. We encourage open dialogue and compassion to be at the center of our organization.  We are also encouraging more diversity on our board. LGBTQ+ individuals, women, people with disabilities and Black, Indigenous and People of Color are encouraged to join us.
