Scope and Content Note


Arranged alphabetically by subject
The files contain materials created in the course of the Task Force's lifespan. The Task Force held three public hearings in different locations and gathered testimony. Excerpts of this testimony are in the final report and in many of these files, especially the files pertaining to the symposia and hearings, and correspondence. Several symposia were held to build community trust and to disseminate information on ways to promote tolerance for racial and cultural differences. Particular attention was paid to non-force options for law enforcement, and conflict resolution. Additionally, the task force worked on the design of a law enforcement reporting system for hate crimes so that there might be an accurate record of the number and locations of incidents.
In addition to administrative files, correspondence, advisory councils, work plans and progress reports the series includes demographic information, news articles, pending legislation, court cases, and conflict resolution.
There is more information gathered on some areas of the state than others, reflecting the different levels of problem incidents and citizen concern.
