The Brookings Institution and HUMANLEVEL launched a partnership in 2023 to disrupt and dismantle assumptions, institutions, and pre-existing public policies that have attempted to prevent Black, Brown, and other marginalized communities from thriving and experiencing well-being. The partnership formally launched in Washington, D.C. at an event convening policymakers, members of the media, researchers, funders, and community advocates to share newly released data on well-being. Programming at the event explored insights and stories of the people and places having a positive effect on the well-being of all Americans.
