How does the CRC work?

CRC's diverse membership is divided into six subcommittees: Programs, Communication, Education, Police-Community Relations, Intercultural Relations and Young Leaders. The subcommittee chairs, along with the CRC chairperson and vice-chairperson, form the CRC Leadership Committee. Recommendations for action or advocacy are made by subcommittee chairs through their participation in the CRC Leadership Committee.

These committee members provide authentic feedback on community issues, weigh in on proposed courses of action and facilitate communication between the committee, the community and elected officials. CRC members also serve to promote civic opportunities, understanding, respect and goodwill among all citizens; provide channels of communication among the various racial, religious and ethnic groups in Charlotte-Mecklenburg; develop and maintain working relationships with special interest groups; promote multicultural education, monitor school issues, and advocate for equitable education opportunities for all children.

CRC members' work also includes investigating potentially disruptive community conditions, determining proper interventions to avoid violence, consulting with appropriate referral agencies or authorities; enhancing community trust in the process for receiving, investigating, and adjudicating complaints of police misconduct, and improving relations between the citizens of Charlotte-Mecklenburg and Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Officers.
