75th Anniversary of the New Jersey Division on Civil Rights Law Against Discrimination “Stop the Hate” Series: An Anti-Bias Vision for the Next Generation - Youth Awards Ceremony
In 2019, more than half of known bias offenders in New Jersey were age 25 or younger. The recommendations in New Jersey’s Interagency Task Force to Combat Youth Bias report focus on the future of New Jersey’s young people and outline how we can work towards a more equitable and just state. Task Force recommendations outline a bold vision to guide New Jersey’s young people, unapologetically, down a new path, one where all of New Jersey’s communities are seen, reflected, and valued. To see this vision become a reality, we must educate our entire community to recognize and challenge implicit, explicit, and systemic biases, we must begin dismantling the biases imbedded in our State’s institutions, and we must protect New Jersey’s historically-marginalized residents. DCR’s implementation of the student youth art, hashtag, slogan, and video competition was a part of the Report, launching a statewide campaign to stand up to hate in New Jersey. We are thrilled to showcase the contest submissions and discuss the winning anti-bias pieces with our students.
