COVID-19: For more up-to-date information on policing responses to the COVID-19 pandemic, check out our News section.

To support and help strengthen the work of advocates and organizers, the Hub is committed to providing and uplifting up-to-date research, reports, data, model policies, toolkits and other resources. We do this by searching for, categorizing, and making available existing resources from partner organizations and others working on issues related to policing. When needed, the Hub also produces its own research in collaboration with partners. This resource database is categorized, easy to search, and regularly updated by our research team.

If you would like to suggest a resource to be included in our database, please submit it here.

Resources that appear on the Community Resource Hub website are not necessarily supported or endorsed by the Hub. The resources that appear represent various different policies, toolkits, and data that have been presented to challenge issues relevant to safety, policing, and accountability.

Policing Women: Race and gender disparities in police stops, searches, and use of force

Prison Policy Initiative

Jails have been described as the criminal justice system’s “front door,” but jail incarceration typically begins with the police, with an arrest. Before any bail hearing, pretrial detention, prosecution, or sentencing, there is contact with the police. But despite their crucial role in the process, we know less about these police encounters than other stages of the criminal justice system. This report analyzes gender and racial disparities in traffic and street stops, including arrests, searches, and use of force that occurs during stops.

Ten Key Facts About Policing: Highlights From Our Work

Prison Policy Initiative

Prison Policy Initiative (PPI) research on the policies that impact justice-involved and incarcerated people therefore often intersects with policing issues. Now, at a time when police practices, budgets, and roles in society are at the center of the national conversation about criminal justice, PPI has compiled key work related to policing (and discussions of other researchers’ work) in one briefing.

Fact Sheet: State Violence & Gender Violence

Collective Action for Safe Spaces (CASS) DC

The experiences of women of color and transgender people of color are frequently excluded from advocacy against police brutality, which focuses primarily on the experiences and needs of black men, and advocacy against gender-based violence, which focuses primarily on the experiences and needs of white women. In using a holistic definition of street harassment that incorporates factors like real or perceived racial, ethnic, and/or religious identity, Collective Action for Safe Spaces (CASS) aims to elevate the voices and needs of women of color and transgender people of color in its work to address street harassment. By centering the most marginalized identities in our community, we are making public spaces safe for everyone.

National/Non-Region Specific Guides and Resources – Mutual Aid during COVID-19

Lysistrata Mutual Care Collective & Fund

Lysistrata has been operating a fund for sex workers (SWs) since the shutdown of Backpage’s Adult Services Section (2016/2017), through SESTA/FOSTA (2018) and despite a major funding gap over the past 6 months. Now we are facing another crisis as the Covid-19 pandemic spreads. Lysistrata takes requests nationally but wants to support a new flurry of local SWs organizing emergency funds/resource distribution and be able to point folks who seek assistance to as many resources available to them as possible (a process hopefully aided by the creation of this doc).
