The League of Women Voters of the Hamptons has planned a July 13 forum on the role of the anti-bias task forces in Southampton and East Hampton towns.

Representatives of the two towns' task forces are to speak at the event about how their groups work to combat discrimination and prejudice. Each town's task force serves as a liaison among residents, religious institutions, schools, police and government on issues of discrimination and prejudice.

The forum is to begin at 7 p.m. at the Hampton Library on Montauk Highway in Bridgehampton.
