The Task Force on Race and Racism

The Task Force on Race and Racism was created in 2012 to bring attention to and address the experiences and status of anthropologists who are members of historically marginalized groups. The Task Force aims to develop strategies for implementing the recommendations of the 2010 Final Report Commission on Race and Racism in Anthropology.

As an advisory body to the AAA Executive Board, the Task Force will provide recommendations annually to the Board. Through dialogue and a discipline wide survey, the Task Force will encourage students, faculty, practitioners, and institutions to engage diversity in substantive ways in the attempt to strengthen the discipline.
