CRS supports communities across the United States and its territories as they respond to race-based tension and conflict. Race-based tension and conflict can be on the basis of actual or perceived race or because of personal characteristics associated with race. Below are a few examples of the support CRS can provide:

  • Discussing perceived inequities and allegations of racially-biased policing with law enforcement agencies, community leaders, and all levels of government
  • Sharing best practices for developing policies and procedures for alleviating community tensions
  • Assisting law enforcement professionals and community members with resolving tensions and strengthening police-community partnerships when conflicts based on race arise
  • Helping law enforcement professionals, community representatives, city officials, and demonstration organizers ensure safe and lawful assembly when rallies and demonstrations are planned in response to racial tension
  • Facilitating dialogues with administrators, staff, educators, and students at schools and universities to increase cross-racial understanding and to address bullying and hate issues

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