The Community Research Network

The Community Research Network (CRN) is a trans-national network of research and grassroots organizations conducting community-based research for social change. 

The mission of the CRN is to create a system through which grassroots, worker, and public-interest organizations and local governments can -- by establishing the agenda and controlling the results of research -- find solutions to social and environmental problems and participate more effectively in public policy.
