Local News

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. — The Grand Valley Task Force (GVTF) will host its second quarterly meeting at the old Mesa County Courthouse building and via Zoom to present the progress made by its working groups to identify and address bias within systems in our community. The meeting will take place at 544 Rood Avenue in room 3A and can also be accessed virtually from 6:00PM to 7:00PM. Members of the public who wish to attend the meeting virtually may email info@gvtaskforce.org and request the meeting access information.

Each working group will give a short presentation on their priority objectives and proposed strategies for achieving them, as well as opportunities for community members to participate in the work of each group.

“This meeting is an opportunity for our community to see what each working group is focusing on and how people can be involved,” Anna Stout, GVTF President, said. “Of the eight overarching objectives of the task force, each working group has prioritized the top two or three they are addressing initially and they are designing strategies around them. This is long-term work, and these strategies range from readily implementable to medium- and long-range efforts.”

The Grand Valley Task Force (GVTF) was created in response to a nation-wide effort to combat explicit, implicit, and institutional bias in the summer of 2020. This group was founded by both local institutions and community members. The six working groups are focusing on the following systems: K-12 Education, Mental Health, Community, Law Enforcement, Criminal Justice, and Human Services.
