Youth Bias Task Force Competition Winners

Celebrating 75 Years


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.

DCR is excited to celebrate the work of over 175 students who submitted entries to the Youth Bias Student Competition.

We are amazed by the brilliant creativity and thoughtfulness of students across New Jersey!
