ABSTRACT: In response to the killing of George Floyd on May 25, 2020, and with a sense of urgency, the authors created and conducted a unique approach-a reckoning-to confronting racism in nursing. The project began with a series of five online discussions centering on the voices of nurses of color, followed by further ongoing discussions aimed at building antiracist capabilities for all participating nurses. This article describes the implementation and early outcomes of the project and provides its underlying principles, which are based on insights from activists and scholars whose work has focused on antiracist guidelines.
