Narrative change has become a popular focus with growing urgency to change public narratives around issues like racial justice, health equity, abortion rights, and rights for trans people.

This Guide to Government Action is part of a suite of materials that presents how narratives, policies, and practices across the food-health nexus can be transformed to promote human, ecological, and animal health and well-being.

Our Inclusiveness Index is uniquely focused on the degree of inclusion and marginality rather than a more general assessment of group-based well-being. Inclusivity entails greater access to power and public and private resources, and improves the way society views group members. Inclusivity is realized when historically or currently marginalized groups feel valued, when differences are respected, and when basic and fundamental needs and rights— relative to those societies' dominant groups—are met and recognized. Our Index focuses onsocial groups rather than individuals or even communities, as marginality often occurs as a result of group membership.
