This chapter reviews efforts by government in the US to promote social equity by addressing the problem of discrimination based on factors such as race, ethnicity, and sex that has operated to suppress millions of people. Five key lessons from the past 80 years of struggle are highlighted. Among the items noted are the critical importance of early activists associated with the civil rights movement, the emergence of affirmative action and its various forms, and the role of the US Supreme Court in establishing the legal boundaries of affirmative action and related programs. The chapter concludes by noting that much progress has been made, but much work remains to be done.
