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.

Share this page with your family and take action together. This letter is available in a variety of languages.

Hope is a Discipline: Mariame Kaba on Dismantling the Carceral State

Two Sides of Justice: Curriculum & Audio Stories

Project NIA

Two Sides of Justice is a collection of narratives from system survivors. The criminal justice system has altered the lives of the people whose stories you are about to hear, sometimes for the better but more often for the worse. This curriculum resource was created by educator & long-time Project NIA volunteer Santera Matthews for educators and organizers who would like to use the stories to start or extend discussions about harm, violence and criminalization in their communities. This work is part of the Building Accountable Communities Project (BAC) spearheaded by Project NIA. The curriculum was designed by Rachel Hoffman.

Paliques Policiales

Kilometro 0

Police Paliques is a periodic series with which we provide citizens with a brief, accessible and rigorous analysis of a single, very specific aspect of police violence. The first Palique is about the intimidation practice that the Puerto Rico Police has used by using an excessive number of agents to intervene with individuals during curfew interventions in the COVID-19 pandemic. The analysis arises from the data collected in our ‘Evidence of Violence’ project, which documents, accounts and denounces violent, excessive or discriminatory interventions by the Puerto Rico Police, especially in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic and the curfew that has already been extended for 7 months. The second one is about the use of threats to intervene with citizens during the pandemic and the third one is about the Police Bureau’s use of the category “passion crime” to report domestic violence crimes.
