CRS Presents Its Fiscal Year (FY) 2017 Annual Report

Screenshot of the CRS Annual Report

CRS is pleased to present its FY 2017 Annual Report, which highlights the agency’s work helping to maintain peace in communities across the country. FY 2017 saw community conflicts and tensions throughout the country: from protests and counter-protests; to hate crimes and bias incidents in places of worship (including mosques, synagogues, gurdwaras, and temples) and against individuals based on their sexual orientation or gender identity; to bullying and crimes against students of color and persons with disabilities; to the race-based tensions that communities have faced since before the creation of CRS.  Clearly, the role CRS plays as “America’s Peacemaker” is as important as ever.

The Annual Report can be accessed here: FY 2017 Annual Report (PDF). For a printed copy of this report, please contact CRS at askcrs@usdoj.gov.
