COTAD STANDS WITH THE BLACK OT COMMUNITY

As a grassroots organization dedicated to developing a diverse workforce and inclusive profession, we denounce police brutality and racism. We are deeply impacted, heartbroken, and angry about the senseless murders of Black people at the hands of police. 

COTAD believes in action-oriented organizing to hold our profession accountable for creating a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive society. We are calling all members of the OT community to join us in sparking dialogue and igniting change to promote occupational justice and end systemic racism.
