Harris wants to create a task force on online harassment and abuse

WASHINGTON – Vice President Kamala Harris will create a new task force dedicated to tackling online harassment and abuse, according to senior officials in the Biden administration.

The National Security Council is working with the White House Gender Policy Council on the initiative, and Attorney General Merrick Garland and Surgeon General Vivek Murthy are scheduled to attend the first meeting on Thursday.
