Washington, D.C. — On Monday, October 21, the Center for American Progress and PolicyLink in partnership with the Rockefeller Foundation will host a press call to discuss a new poll that answers key questions about how Americans feel about the demographic change that our nation is undergoing, their view of the role of government, and the level of support for policy solutions that would reduce inequalities.

The nationwide poll is the largest of its kind with oversamples of Latinos, African Americans, and Asians.
