Take pride in what we have achieved together!

The Center for Constitutional Rights would not be able to fight for justice without the tremendous support of people like you. We are extremely grateful for the loyalty and generosity that our partners have shown over the years.

Last week we released our annual report, which details the issues we’re combatting, the vision we have for a world free from systemic oppression, and how it is we do the work that we do.  We invite you to check it out and learn more about how supporters like you make it possible for us to stand with communities on the front lines of some of the most pressing fights of our time.

You can read the report on our website.
