Anti-Bias Task Force (ABTF) is a non-partisan group formed by Long Island area residents in conjunction with the Suffolk County Anti-Bias Task Force (SCABTF).  ABTF is made up of concerned clergy, community representatives and lay persons who work together to address the issues of intolerance, prejudice, discrimination and racism.  This includes intolerance, discrimination, racism and prejudice against persons because of their race, color, national origin, ancestry, ethnicity, class, religion, religious practice, age (over 60), disability (physical or mental), gender or sexual orientation.  The ABTF works to prevent and combat the destructive effects of all of these actions. 

You can contact us at abtfli2@gmail.com
