CENTER FOR CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS wrote -
The Center for Constitutional Rights (CCR) has been fighting on the front lines for human rights and social justice since 1966. In the past year alone, CCR won a landmark victory on behalf of hundreds of thousands of New Yorkers who are victims of the NYPD’s discriminatory stop-and-frisk practices; garnered the first ever settlement on behalf of Iraqi torture victims at Abu Ghraib; advocated on behalf of our clients and others who remain indefinitely detained at Guantánamo Bay; won a positive ruling in our challenge to anti-gay extremist Scott Lively’s persecution of LGBTI Ugandans; and so much more.
We couldn’t do any of this work without the support of our generous donors. This #GivingTuesday we hope you’ll stand with us again on the front lines. The Case Foundation has generously agreed to match all contributions for the first $60,000 donated. The earlier you donate, the larger the impact you’ll make.
