Anti-Hate Task Force to Hold a Virtual Meeting on Nov. 9; AAPI and LGBTQ+ Cohorts to Present Recommendations

Per Montgomery County: “The Montgomery County Anti-Hate Task Force’s Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) and LGBTQ+ cohorts will present their policy recommendations to the task force at a virtual meeting on Thursday, Nov. 9 at 7 p.m. The Anti-Hate Task Force was formally adopted through a resolution with unanimous support in June. The task force is made up of community and faith leaders working to engage the community and develop recommendations to inform policies that promote safety and combat hate crimes in Montgomery County.

Cohort groups representing the Jewish, Black/African American, LGBTQ+, Asian American and Pacific Islander, Latino/Hispanic and Muslim communities will present their policy recommendations at meetings throughout the fall. Each of the six cohort groups may also hold listening sessions to provide an opportunity for the public to engage and provide input.

The full task force will submit its final report with recommendations for legislation, regulations, policies and procedures related to the Council and other County agencies and present it on Nov. 28. The virtual meeting will take place on Thursday, Nov. 9 at 7 p.m. and will be conducted virtually via Zoom. Members of the public can register here. The meeting will be available to watch live on YouTube.

Visit the Council webpage for the schedule of upcoming meetings, listening sessions and to watch past meetings. Members of the media must RSVP by Thursday, Nov. 9 at noon by emailing Bertha Cerzosimo at [email protected].”
