Anti-Bias Task Force

Riverhead Interfaith ABTF

MISSION STATEMENT

Intolerance and prejudice against persons because of their race, ethnicity, age, disability, gender, religion or sexual orientation tears at the fabric of a democratic and pluralistic society.  Acts of violence based on such bias further alienate individuals and groups and serve to rob us of the crucial sense of security we all require in order to live, work, and play or pray in our communities.  In consideration of the destructive effects of prejudice and racism in our communities and in order to address this ongoing problem, the Riverhead Anti-Bias Task Force has been created.

 

The Task Force is a non-partisan group comprised of concerned citizens, government officials, representatives of law enforcement, education, and clergy all of whom work together to address the issue of prejudice.
