President Obama: We Say “Close Guantánamo” — It’s This Easy

Close Guantánamo NowClose Guantánamo Now

Please sign the form on the right to help us close Guantánamo.

Once you sign, we at the Center for Constitutional Rights will print a postcard, like the ones above, with your name on it. We will gather these postcards and deliver them to President Obama at the White House and urge President Obama to use the power that he has under the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) to shutter the prison.

The NDAA, approved by Congress, gives President Obama the power that he needs to release men from Guantánamo and close the prison. Urge him to use it. Closing Guantánamo is not complicated. Remind President Obama: It's this easy.

CCR has led the legal battle over Guantánamo for the last 11 years – representing clients in two Supreme Court cases and organizing and coordinating hundreds of pro bono lawyers across the country, ensuring that nearly all the men detained at Guantánamo have had the option of legal representation. Among other Guantánamo cases, the Center represents the families of men who died at Guantánamo, and men who have been released and are seeking justice in international courts. In addition, CCR has been working through diplomatic channels to resettle men who remain at Guantánamo because they cannot return to their country of origin for fear of persecution and torture.
