CCR fights tirelessly to obtain justice for those who have fallen victim to domestic government abuses perpetuated in the name of the so-called “war on terror.” Our challenges to discriminatory profiling, torture, and illegal detentions of Muslims in the U.S. began in the days immediately after the tragic 9/11 attacks when Muslim, South Asian, and Arab men were rounded up on the basis of their religion and detained in extremely restrictive and abusive prison conditions. Our efforts continue to the present, as Muslims are segregated in experimental prison units and targeted by government informants, expansive “Muslim-mapping” and religious surveillance programs. Some of our most fundamental rights — the right to habeas corpus, the right to due process, the right to a fair trial, the right to equal protection — rights that separate a democracy from a police state – are being systematically eroded in Muslim communities. The Center is committed to amplifying the voices of our clients, Muslim activists, and their communities through litigation and advocacy. Together, we are working to challenge the prejudice and fear-mongering that has increasingly been used after 9/11 to deny Muslim individuals and communities constitutional protection from government overreach and law enforcement abuse.
