WASHINGTON — As part of the nation’s historic reckoning on racism, the American Psychological Association has apologized to communities of color for its role—and the role of the discipline of psychology—in contributing to systemic racism.

The association’s governing Council of Representatives adopted an apology at its meeting Oct. 29, acknowledging that APA “failed in its role leading the discipline of psychology, was complicit in contributing to systemic inequities, and hurt many through racism, racial discrimination, and denigration of communities of color, thereby falling short on its mission to benefit society and improve lives.”
