The Community Relations Service
The Community Relations Service (CRS) is a U.S. Department of Justice component created by the Civil Rights Actof 1964 to help resolve community racial conflict through non-coercive, third party intervention. CRS is calledupon to assist communities to resolve disputes arising from biases of race, color, and national origin. As a result,agency conciliators have developed extensive experience in issues associated with racial and ethnic conflict.CRS provides a wide range of informal assistance that attempts to keep communications open among affectedparties and to facilitate a mutually acceptable resolution of community racial conflict. Facilitating CommunityDialogues on Race is one of the creative ways in which CRS opens lines of communication and helps thecommunity resolve its own racial problems. In addition, CRS conducts formal mediated negotiations to help resolvedifferences. CRS offers its services either upon request or on its own initiative, when there is a threat of disruptionto peaceful community relations.The Community Relations Service is headquartered in Washington, D.C., and has Regional Offices in Atlanta,Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Kansas City, Los Angeles, New York, Philadelphia, and Seattle.
