DISCRIMINATION IN AMERICA: Native American Experiences
Presented in collaboration with the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and NPR

Tuesday, December 12, 2017
Noon-1pm ET
Live webcast: ForumHSPH.org

How do Native Americans experience discrimination in daily life? A new poll by NPR, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF), and the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health illuminates Native Americans’ personal experiences with discrimination. The report reveals that more than a third of Native Americans and their family members have experienced slurs and violence, and close to a third have faced discrimination in the workplace and when interacting with police. The poll also reveals that Native Americans who live in majority-Native areas are significantly more likely to experience this kind of discrimination.

This poll is one a series of reports that surveyed additional groups, including Latinos, Asian Americans, African Americans, men, women, and LGBTQ adults, on their experiences with discrimination.
