The Independence Task Force is a volunteer advocacy group that is tied to the Commission on Decolonization in the Government of Guam.

The Decolonization Commission is mandated to see through the process of decolonization for Guam. Part of this is ensuring that those who have been historically deprived of the right to self-determination, are able to exercise that right and vote for what next political status Guam will have. The Decolonization Commission is meant to be an objective, impartial guide in this process and not favor any particular political status option over the others.

The Independence Task Force, and its fellow Task Forces for Statehood and Free Association each play a role in advocating their own particular status. These Task Forces are made up of community members who make a public commitment to furthering the cause of self-determination in general, and their political status in particular.
