Work With Us

The Community Relations Service (CRS) is a component of the Department of Justice.

As America’s Peacemaker, CRS provides facilitation, mediation, training and consultation services to communities in conflict — enhancing their ability to independently prevent and resolve future conflicts.

Since 1964, CRS has served as a force for conciliation and peace in communities fraught with racial tension and discord. Over the years, the scope of CRS’ work has expanded to address discrimination and hate crimes based on race, religion, national origin, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation and disability.

Our approach, though adaptive to the changing times, remains rooted in our core mission: to build trust, increase capacity and foster lasting relationships. By doing so, we aim to create a nation resilient in the face of hate and discrimination.

Our employees work at CRS Headquarters in Washington, D.C., and in the field through one of our 10 regional offices and three field offices.

These offices are strategically located throughout the country to meet the unique needs of the communities CRS serves and enable staff to deploy quickly in times of crisis.
