Community Groups

CRS works directly with community groups as they seek to engage in collaborative processes with state and local government officials, law enforcement, school systems, and other organizations stemming from community conflict and hate incidents. Some ways CRS supports community groups are:

  • Facilitating meetings where community groups can effectively express their concerns to other stakeholders so they can develop mutually beneficial solutions
  • Co-hosting forums with community members, faith-based groups, and non-profit organizations to provide information on hate crimes and resources to help the community in the aftermath of hate crimes Below are some recent examples of CRS's work with community groups. Additional case summaries may be found within CRS’s Annual Reports, located on the CRS Resource Center webpage.
