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 tear at the fabric of the Huntington Community.

The Huntington Anti-Bias Task Force (HABTF) is a non-partisan group, under the auspices of the Town of Huntington in conjunction with the Suffolk County Anti-Bias Task Force. It is made up of concerned clergy, community representatives and lay persons who work together to address the issue of intolerance, prejudice, discrimination and racism in any segment of our town. The Task Force will work to prevent and combat intolerance, prejudice, discrimination and racism, and defuse their destructive effects in several ways, including but not limited to:
  • Reaching out in an impartial manner to bring together involved parties for dialogue;
  • Fostering a network of local clergy and community representatives to develop responsible leadership, working in partnership with the Task Force;
  • Working with and through appropriate town channels to dismantle societal structures which lead to bias, hatred and misunderstanding;
  • Networking with educational, government and law enforcement agencies to combat prejudice, discrimination, racism and its destructiveness;
  • Supporting programs of education to eliminate bias and hatred;
  • Standing up against intolerance, discrimination, racism and prejudice against persons because of their race, ethnicity, color, national origin, ancestry, class, religion, religious practice, age (over 60), disability (physical or mental), gender or sexual orientation;
  • Developing a significant and public presence in the Town of Huntington so that individuals, local groups and the media will be aware of the important and responsible services which the Task Force can provide.
Next meeting of HABTF is 1:00 PM Tues July 23 at Huntington Town Hall.
