CCC Racial Justice Task Force Forum
One of the most significant achievements of the Contra Costa Racial Justice Coalition is the creation of an official CCC Racial Justice Taskforce to address racial disparities in our criminal justice system. The 17-member Taskforce, which was approved by the Board of Supervisors in April 2016, has been formed and is conducting a series of fora to meet and hear from residents.
The Taskforce is focused on:
1. Researching and identifying consensus measures within the County to reduce racial disparities in the criminal justice system;
2. Planning and overseeing implementation of the measures once identified; and
3. Reporting back to the Board of Supervisors on progress made toward reducing racial disparities within the criminal justice system.
