The Hub serves as a resource for local advocates and organizers working to address the harms of policing in the U.S. and seeking to cultivate community safety and accountability outside of the criminal legal system. The Hub is a conduit of information and assistance for local grassroots organizations across this nation and beyond.
The Hub accomplishes its goals in three main ways:
- By providing and making available up-to-date research, reports, data, model policies, toolkits and other resources to the field
- By supporting specific campaigns with technical assistance needs
- By serving as a convener to bring advocates and organizers together for shared learning

Our work supporting community groups across the country to transform the criminal-legal system confirms the urgent need for research, technical assistance, and resources on the ground. The Community Resource Hub for Safety and Accountability has enormous potential to accelerate grassroots wins and to shift the paradigm about what we need to keep us safe.”

At the Hub, we believe safety is a human right, and that all people and communities should live with human dignity, and have power and resources to demand and win justice, accountability, and systems change when their safety is challenged.
