Start a Local Campaign
We have developed the following local campaigns, which allow individual municipalities to do what the federal government will not: protect law-abiding Americans’ liberty and privacy, and hold accountable government officials complicit in torture.
- Local Civil Rights Restoration (LCRR) campaigns focus on ending local police participation in warrantless surveillance and profiling based on race, religion, or political viewpoint
- Campaigns to restore due process and the right to trial work to end the indefinite military detention powers authorized by the National Defense Authorization Act of 2012
- Torture-free zone campaigns give local communities a voice to call for executive officials who authorized torture to be held accountable for their crimes
