Making a Difference
Involved CCR supporters have made a huge impact, sending thousands of letters to Congress demanding they restore habeas corpus and close Guantánamo, urging that the German federal prosecutor take up our press war crimes charges against Donald Rumsfeld, and petitioning Condoleezza Rice to prevent one of our clients from being sent home to Libya to be tortured.
This year we finally suceeded in ending and exploitative telephone contract between New York State and MCI/Verizon which charged family members 630 percent more for collect phone calls from their loved ones in prison.
CCR supporters even made it on to the front page of a judge's opinion, when they helped to convince a New York State Supreme Court judge to revoke the plea bargain that he had accepted for Emanuel "Toto" Constant, the Haiti paramilitary leader and human rights abuser.
Our work began on behalf of civil rights activists in the Jim Crow South and the racist North, and continues to be at the forefront of the fight for social justice -- confronting new global challenges to the Constitution. CCR's groundbreaking work is made possible with the generous support of donors at every level.

Actions by Issue
From demanding that Congress restore habeas corpus and close Guantánamo, to asking a German federal prosecutor take up our case against Donald Rumsfeld and Alberto Gonzales or asking Condoleezza Rice to prevent one of our clients from being sent home to Libya to be tortured, find ways to act on the issues most important to you.
Spread the Word
A surprisingly small number of people know what habeas corpus is, that Chevron was involved in the massacre of Nigerian activists, or that an innocent Canadian citizen was sent to Syria and tortured at the behest of the U.S. government. The more people that know, the more resistance there will be. One of the most effective ways to take action is to raise awareness around these issues.
