UMass Poll Surveys Participants About Culture Issues

A new national UMass Amherst Poll surveyed views on some of the culture issues dividing the country, including diversity, trans rights, antisemitism, immigration and the definition of the political buzzword “woke.” Among other things, the poll found that about 60% supported the statement that “being a man or a woman is something that is permanent and cannot be changed.” Genny Beemyn, director the Stonewall Center, said, “ They don’t know us, so I’m not surprised that a majority of people feel that way.” (MassLive, MassLive, 6/20/23; News Office release)
