CRS works with communities to prevent and respond to alleged hate crimes based on gender. Gender conflicts affect men and women alike, and CRS works with community leaders, advocates, law enforcement professionals, local and state officials, and educational institutions to develop mechanisms for preventing and responding to gender-based conflicts in the community. Some ways CRS supports these communities are:

  • Bringing together community members, civil rights organizations, school representatives, and law enforcement professionals to discuss incidents of gender-based bullying among youth, both inside and outside of school
  • Conducting meetings with law enforcement professionals, community leaders, civil rights organizations, and school representatives following alleged hate crimes committed on the basis of gender

Below are some recent examples of CRS's work assisting communities experiencing tension and conflict based on gender. Additional case summaries may be found within CRS’s Annual Reports, located on the CRS Resource Center webpage.
