Governmental task force to battle racism against Ethiopian-Israelis holds first meeting

A new inter-ministerial task force to examine racism against Ethiopian Israelis held its first meeting on Tuesday, as part of a government effort to find tools to combat discrimination, the Justice Ministry said in a statement. 

The task force is headed by Justice Ministry head Ami Palmor, who said on Monday that it “would work to affect significant changes in dealing with racism against Israelis of Ethiopian descent.”

The task force includes a “consultation panel” which will work on developing a database on racism, and formulate suggestions for how to deal with specific complaints of mistreatment.
