Thank you for another groundbreaking year at the Center for Constitutional Rights! If you have not made a year-end gift, make a commitment today here: Join Us! We need you to stay with us on the frontlines of justice.
Compiling our 2022 Annual Report was a true labor of love for the staff of the Center for Constitutional Rights. We relished the opportunity to put in one place a summary of how, together, we are changing and saving lives.
The report is an exciting representation of what is possible with your financial investment in the Center for Constitutional Rights. We hope the stories not only gratify you but energize you as well. You are essential to communities and movements under threat. Join the Fight for Justice!

The City University of New York School of Law will welcome our Executive Director Vince Warren as the 2023 W. Haywood Burns Chair in Human and Civil Rights.
The Burns Chair honors W. Haywood Burns, a people’s lawyer, professor, and civil rights activist who served as the second dean of CUNY School of Law, from 1987 to 1994. Haywood was the first Black dean of a law school in New York State; in that role he helped bring to fruition a new model of legal education whose central purpose was to train lawyers dedicated to the public good.
Vince will join CUNY Law in 2023 as a thought leader, teacher, and mentor. As Burns Chair, a visiting faculty position, he will facilitate discussion and debate in student sessions and public forums; teach a seminar; and direct research undertaken by students at the law school who have been named W. Haywood Burns Fellows. In his teaching and public presentations, Vince will explore social movement lawyering, addressing the role that lawyers, activists, journalists, and artists play in mobilizing movements that advance racial, economic, and social justice.
