Working with LGBTQ Communities


The U.S. Department of Justice Community Relation Service (CRS) works to prevent and respond to hate crimes against lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer or questioning (LGBTQ) communities through facilitated dialogue, training, consultation, and mediation. CRS provides services to help improve communication and understanding between LGBTQ communities, law enforcement and government officials, educational professionals, and other community members and leaders to enhance partnerships, public safety, and responses to hate crimes.
