NJ Division on Civil Rights

In 1945, New Jersey’s Law Against Discrimination became the first state-level civil rights statute in the country. The Division on Civil Rights is charged with enforcing this law, and with preventing and eliminating discrimination in the state of New Jersey.

Youth Bias Task Force

In October 2020, The Attorney General, Division on Civil Rights and other state agencies released the Youth Bias Task Force Report—a comprehensive review of how institutional bias continues to pervade New Jersey and impact young people across our state. The #CivilRightsNJ #StopTheHate report called for sweeping policy changes, including anti-bias training for NJ teachers, strengthening our state’s hate crime laws, and significant changes to classroom curricula. To encourage education and awareness of these issues in the population most impacted – youth — we launched the Youth Bias Task Force Student Competition encouraging youth under the age of 25 to submit a slogan/hashtag, artwork design, or video on the theme of #StopTheHate.

The winning designs will be announced on April 28th, during the 75th Anniversary of the LAD event.  Winners’ designs will be used in a multimedia campaign to encourage residents to #StopTheHate in NJ and have the opportunity to participate in a roundtable discussion to share their experiences with hate, stereotyping, and bias, and what they think we should do better!
