Access to opportunities for quality education, affordable housing, and employment still evades many Americans based on past and present prejudice, bias, and stigmatization. This social marginalization has led the United States to ignore the valuable human capital that exists within these communities and has fostered deep inequality throughout society. Addressing racial and social injustices, deconstructing stereotypes, dismantling inequality, and exposing unfair practices will lead to the full social, civic, economic, and political integration of these marginalized groups. Researchers, practitioners and policymakers can engage in a variety of activities that will advance this Grand Challenge and ignite social work achievements.
