Over the last eight years, the Bush administration has systematically dismantled the most important rights and protections in the United States Constitution. In the first 100 days of office, the next president can, often with the stroke of a pen, restore, protect, and expand the fundamental rights on which our nation was founded.
It is up to all of us to see that he does.
The Center for Constitutional Rights' 100 Days Campaign focuses on the harm done by previous administrations and the hopes we have for making the country a better place for all.
Join us in telling the next administration what you want to see in the first 100 days. Look for a series of white papers, videos, speaking tours and online activism that will bring these issues front and center in the public debate.
This brochure provides an overview of the issue areas covered in our 100 Days Campaign, including:
- Ending Torture, Rendition, and Illegal Detention
- Protecting Dissent
- Abolishing Preventive Detention
- Limiting State Secrets Privilege
- Restoring the War Powers Act
- Stopping Warrantless Wiretapping
- Rolling Back Executive Power
