Agency Description

The Community Relations Service (CRS) serves as “America’s Peacemaker” for communities facing conflict based on actual or perceived race, color, national origin, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, or disability. CRS works toward its mission by providing facilitated dialogue, mediation, training, and consultation to help these communities come together, develop solutions to the conflict, and enhance their capacity to independently prevent and resolve future conflict.

Our services are confidential and free of cost. We do not investigate or prosecute, nor do we have any law enforcement authority. We work with all parties to develop solutions to conflict and serve as a neutral party.


DOJ Reference Guide:

The DOJ Reference Guide is a comprehensive guide to the FOIA that serves as a handbook for obtaining information from the Department. Furthermore, FOIA.gov provides additional details about the FOIA, including a description of the FOIA's Exemptions and Exclusions.
