Our Vision

We envision just systems where diverse communities inform and drive solutions. To realize this vision, CRRN focuses on:

  • Growing a nationwide culturally responsive researcher network: We curate a searchable database and opportunities connecting researchers, practitioners, and impacted groups.

  • Building capacity for community-centered research: Our training equips partners with culturally responsive methodologies and equitable engagement tactics.

  • Facilitating collaborations across sectors: We foster partnerships between justice agencies, community advocates, administrators, and other stakeholders to enhance inclusion.

  • Translating research into equitable reforms: We help partners apply insights to policy and practice change reflecting experiences of all groups.

CRRN serves as a collaborative force for transformative systems change. We cultivate the shared knowledge and political will to challenge inequities and create lasting justice for all.
