The demographics of the United States, and of the world, are rapidly changing; national and racial diversity is increasing and bifurcation of socioeconomic status continues. These societal patterns highlight the tensions and hopeful possibilities inherent in the science and practice of behavior analysis. In this paper, we review the general climate surrounding diverse populations and access to care, characterize the demographics of behavior analysis and leadership, and discuss the synergistic activities two related disciplines, public health and anthropology, may contribute toward social justice. We conclude with recommendations and goals for increasing cultural responsiveness in the study and practice of behavior analysis. Such responsiveness is likely to allow advances in our understanding of how behavior changes and what meaning those changes have for individuals and society.
