The CBNA took a call to action required to take a stand for the unheard voices of Black Nurses in Canada. Within the health care sector, Black Nurses historically have been discriminated against, devalued, passed over, not given credit for their contributions in nursing history and underrepresented at leadership tables. With a feeling that the unique needs of Black nurses were not being met in July 2020 the Canadian Black Nurses Alliance (CBNA) and aligned with five nursing leaders to begin the process of organizing Black Nurses across Canada. The first national organization for Black Nurses in Canada, the CBNA was born from the overwhelming and long-standing need for the voices of Black nurses to be heard. In this session, the speakers will discuss their journey of establishing the CBNA, their successes and challenges to date, and their vision in working towards equity in health care.
