Trust & Race

In the wake of the brutal killings of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, among countless other Black Americans, and the subsequent protests and demonstrations across the country, a recent Edelman Trust Barometer flash poll found that Americans want brands to step up and play a central role in addressing systemic racism. This is a mandate for brands to act because consumers will exercise brand democracy with their dollars. Learn more about the findings of this survey and how it is being used to guide companies and organizations, as well as the benefits of Edelman’s long-term investment in the Trust Barometer.
