The Center for Constitutional Rights has led the fight against indefinite detention and torture at Guantánamo since the prison opened in January 2002. We’ve made hundreds of trips to the island prison, gathering client stories and pursuing justice and accountability in the courtroom, in the streets, and before governments all over the world.

Join us for Guantánamo, Off the Record, where Center for Constitutional Rights staff will mark the 20th anniversary of the prison’s opening with candid reflections on two decades of work‒the victories, the losses, and everything in between. Lawyers and advocates will share stories that didn’t always make the headlines, but that helped define the ongoing struggle to close the forever prison.

What led corporate attorneys to represent detained men? Is there really a souvenir shop at Guantanamo? What does life look like for men after they are released?

SPEAKERS:

Aliya Hussain, Advocacy Program Manager, CCR

Katherine Gallagher, Senior Staff Attorney, CCR

Omar Farah, Senior Staff Attorney, CCR

Wells Dixon, Senior Staff Attorney, CCR

Moderated by Vincent Warren, Executive Director, CCR
