Governor's Task Force on Hate Crimes

The Governor's Task Force on Hate Crimes advises the Governor on issues relating to the prevalence, deterrence, and prevention of hate crimes in the Commonwealth and to support the victims of hate crimes.

The Governor's Task Force on Hate Crimes is tasked with encouraging effective coordination in the awareness, prevention, investigation, and prosecution of hate crimes throughout the Commonwealth. Its members include gubernatorial appointees with expertise in community advocacy, law enforcement, health care, law, government and education and represent a group diverse in gender, race, industry, region, age and education.

The Governor's Task Force on Hate Crimes was initiated in 1991 by Governor Bill Weld in conjunction with the Hate Crimes Report Act and then was formalized in 1997 through Executive Order 401 by Governor Paul Cellucci. After a period of dormancy, Governor Charlie Baker reaffirmed and reconstituted it in 2017 through Executive Order 578.
