The Contra Costa County Racial Justice Task Force was created by the Board of Supervisors on April 12, 2016, and given a mandate to:
- Research and identify consensus measures within the County to reduce racial disparities in the criminal justice system;
- Plan and oversee implementation of the measures once identified; and
- Report back to the Board of Supervisors on progress made toward reducing racial disparities within the criminal justice system.
