Anti-Bias Crime Task Force

Mission Statement
Intolerance and prejudice against persons because of their race, religion, ethnicity, sexual orientation, age, gender or disability tears at the fabric of our communities. Acts of violence based on such bias further alienates individuals, 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 Nassau County Anti-Bias Crime Force was born.
