27. Change the culture of stigmatization against getting help for one's self or family when it comes

to mental health or domestic violence. Change the culture of violence through governmental, private and nonprofit work to break the cycle of violence in families. Respect and support anti-bullying initiatives instead of laughing them off. Learn about how the culture of toxic masculinity hurts everyone, including men. Fix our child welfare infrastructure. Fund education in a way that fewer kids fall through the cracks and they all get the help they need. Ensure the "American Dream" doesn't make us compete for jobs, education and health care, but instead provides a basic, life-supporting minimum that we are all free to build upon without taking away from someone else. Continue to work to break down communication barriers among all classes, cultures, ethnicities, faiths, races, genders, political beliefs -- all of them. Dig into data to see what works, and what doesn't; what can be scaled to our enormous and heterogeneous population, and what we should modify or reject. There's a lot of work that remains to be done. It's going to take a long time.
