Addressing Conflict Based on Disability


The United States Department of Justice Community Relations Service (CRS) helps communities address and prevent hate crimes and tensions based on actual or perceived disabilities. CRS works with law enforcement, local and state officials, community groups, civil rights organizations, disability rights organizations, educational institutions, and others to reach a common understanding of the issues surrounding conflicts, including those on the basis of disability, and create sustained methods for preventing and resolving future conflicts.
