Staff

Meet the Center for Constitutional Rights staff. Our Legal, Advocacy, and Communications staff are responsible for our programmatic work. Our Development and Operations Departments, meanwhile, make all of our other efforts possible. Together, we’re a team passionately devoted to our clients and the justice struggles in which our litigation and advocacy work is grounded.
