End Discrimination in America

AN HONEST LOOK AT DISCRIMINATION IN AMERICA

A groundbreaking poll reveals the honest truth—exactly how much discrimination affects the lives of people across America and drives decisions that influence their health, safety, and well-being. Dive into the findings, spread the word with others who share a commitment to promote health equity in America, and help communities coming together to find solutions to discrimination.

HOW TO SHOW YOUR SUPPORT:

  1. At the top of this page, add your support via Twitter, Facebook, or Tumblr and spread word to your friends and followers to do the same.

  2. Watch as everyone's messages are simultaneously shared on January 16, 2018, and watch the Foundation’s Facebook page for more information.

WHY WE CARE

Discrimination has been a mainstay in American life throughout our history. And while many surveys have explored Americans’ beliefs about discrimination, this poll—a collaborative effort among researchers at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, NPR, and Robert Wood Johnson Foundation—asks people about their own personal experiences with discrimination.

The survey, the most sweeping of its kind, provides a scientific backdrop for the stories we hear—and live—across the nation. Respondents are adults ages 18 or older, including African Americans, Latinos, Asian Americans, Native Americans, Whites, LGBTQ adults, men, and women. The poll results are the centerpiece of a national forum taking shape at the Newseum reflecting on housing, education, policing and the importance of promoting health equity in communities.
