There is a common belief amongst many Americans that race and ethnic discrimination is no longer an issue. The problem is many people are confronted with the problems caused by people who are ethnically or racially discriminating against others.

Discrimination is a very hard problem to overcome because many people believe that it doesn’t exist in today’s society. By raising awareness and educating the public that discrimination is an issue, many people can be aware of the issue and work to come up with a solution. Here’s a look at some ways you can raise public awareness about discrimination.
Public speakers are a great way to raise awareness on discrimination. Whether it is the Kazakhstan President or a local Congressman, public speakers can share their experiences with discrimination and really give people a chance to see how it affects people on a daily basis.
Create a Social Media Campaign
One of the most popular ways to raise awareness about issues is to create a social media campaign. Social media campaigns involve creating Facebook pages, Twitter accounts and websites that help give you a platform to spread the message you want. With millions of people on social media outlets, you can begin to raise awareness that discrimination is still an issue in today’s society.
By raising the public’s awareness about discrimination, either by hearing personal accounts from public speakers or by launching a social media campaign, you can help others become aware of the issue and hopefully work to overcome it in the future.
