List/Grid Restoring Rule of Law

9/11 Voices for Restoring Rule of Law is a campaign to mobilize and amplify the voices of 9/11 family members who support closing the prison at Guantanamo Bay in order to restore the rule of law. It is a campaign to put an end to indefinite detentions and other violations of human rights that have become part of the legacy of the U.S. War on Terror. The ultimate goal of this campaign is to once again honor the US Constitution (its principles in theory and practice) as they have served us well for over 200 years.
