Briefing on 2021 Edelman Trust Barometer

Organizer: Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget/FixUS

Trust in societal institutions and leaders has been declining for many years in the United States and globally, with negative ramifications for the state of democracy around the world.

Please join a briefing on the 2021 Edelman Trust Barometer. Edelman has been studying trust for 20 years, turning data into insight on perceptions and trust in institutions.

We will be joined by members of the Edelman team, who will share key findings from the 2021 report and allow for an opportunity to answer your questions.
