We need your help
The Task Force has been active since 1982. We've been here, working quietly and effectively on this crucial issue, supporting the efforts of diverse groups as well as implementing our own programs.
Join us. We meet six months of each year, on the 3rd Wednesday of the odd numbered months. The location and meeting schedule for Task Force and committee meetings are posted on the meeting calendar.
