With funding from the John Randolph and Dora Haynes Foundation, CRCC conducted research on the civic role of religion following the 1992 Los Angeles civil unrest. The project analyzed the evolution and impact of faith-based movements since 1992, and examined why some organizations failed, some succeeded, and others morphed into new forms to address issues. The final report offers recommendations for faith-based organizers, congregations, and policymakers as they work with the faith community on current issues. Richard Flory and Donald Miller were the co-principal investigators on the project.
