Within the Michigan Department of Civil Rights (MDCR), the CRT was designed to initiate pro-active measures and to intervene when necessary to diffuse situations involving community tension and unrest, and to assure that all people enjoy equal rights under law.
To carry out its responsibility, MDCR monitors and intervenes in civil rights related incidents causing tension or unrest. This includes, but is not limited to, incidents involving race, color, religion, sex, age, national origin, disability, or other civil rights related matters.
MDCR will fully utilize its partnership and liaison relationships established through its collaborations with law enforcement agencies, community and faith-based institutions, business community representatives and advocacy agencies located within a community. In all instances MDCR will initiate pro-active measures to restore the civil rights health of the community.
