The Newport-Mesa Unified School District in Orange County is creating an anti-bigotry task force in response to recent incidents of hate and anti-semitism.

Earlier this month, images circulated on social media of Orange County students at an off-campus party giving the Nazi salute. Then, last weekend, Nazi propaganda posters were pasted onto several buildings at Newport Harbor High School.
