The Center for Constitutional Rights is a non-profit legal and educational organization dedicated to protecting and advancing the rights guaranteed by the United States Constitution and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Founded in 1966 by Arthur Kinoy, William Kunstler, Morton Stavis and Ben Smith, CCR is committed to the creative use of law as a positive force for social change.
CCR works to strengthen protections for human rights around the world, to support individuals and groups promoting social justice, and to serve as a check against government abuses of individual rights. Currently, we are leading the fight against government anti-terror initiatives that undermine basic rights both in the United States and abroad.
