Local News

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. — The Grand Valley Task Force (GVTF) will host its first quarterly meeting via Zoom to present the progress made by its seven working groups to identify and address bias within systems in our community. The meeting will take place virtually on February 25, 2021 from 6:00PM to 8:00PM. Members of the public who wish to attend the meeting may email and request the meeting access information, which will be sent via email the morning of February 25.

Each working group will give a short presentation on who their members are and what progress has been made since late last fall, as well as any opportunities for community members to participate in the work of each group.

“We know the issues each working group is tackling will take time and that this is a long-game effort,” Anna Stout, GVTF President, said. “This meeting is our opportunity to present the first steps and early progress on the broader objectives, understanding that we are in the very early stages of this work and are still very interested in hearing from the community.”

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 seven working groups are focusing on the following systems: K-12 Education, Mental Health, Community, Business, Law Enforcement, Criminal Justice, and Human Services.
