Laws

Makes it illegal to retaliate against a person if they complained or accused someone of discrimination.
disabilities
People with mental/physical disabilities are discriminated against because in society, non-disabled are seen as "normal living". this results in people being in favor of those who are non-disabled, and businesses, schools, and other public places being built to serve "standard people". this excludes those with disabilities.(disabled-world.com)
Sexual orientation
21% of LGBT people have reported being discriminated against in the workplace. Gay men, on average, only make about $0.68-$0.90 on the dollar to a straight man.
Lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people are discriminated against because they don't have romantic relationships with only the people of the opposite gender.

Darren Wilson vs. mike brown case
An example of a recent case that might have been discrimination is this case. A police officer, Darren Wilson, was tried for the murder of a black teenage boy, Mike Brown. The argument with this case was whether or not Wilson shot Brown as self defense or simply because he was African American. Darren Wilson was not indicted because of complications with evidence and witness testimonies.
Murder due to Discrimination
In the USA there is murder because of discrimination and annually about 14,478 are murdered. (care2)
suicide due to discrimination
Suicide is attempted a lot. The frequency in age between ages 18-44, in race it's white alone, bisexual people, and also people that are single. Not only is it attempted but an estimated amount of 5,000 have completed youth suicide annually. (bsa-discrimination)
teaching kids about discrimination
It is proven that children's "window of opportunity" for learning is at ages 2-5. teaching kids about discrimination and how to treat everyone equally could reduce the amount of discrimination for the future generations.
"Don't do drugs" type assemblies can be held in school with activities to keep the children interested in learning about discrimination.
Teachers can take time out class to teach students to treat everyone equally.
Teachers can reinforce rules against any type of discrimination in schools.
