A series of events and initiatives to call attention to the devastating impact of the “War on Terror,” demand an end to its abuses, and seek freedom and justice for political prisoners
CCF supports prisoners in a variety of ways. By educating the public about the abusive tactics used in the War on Terror, we endeavor to protect communities from becoming targeted in manufactured cases. In our early interventions, we encourage people NOT to speak to the FBI. In the unfortunate event that a preemptive arrest is made, CCF is there to identify the unjust nature of the case and serve as a resource for families to challenge the government’s narrative. CCF often leads grassroots campaigns for a fair trial since there are many factors causing a prejudicial climate. When possible, we attend trials and hearings and are witnesses to show support and lessen the fear around these types of prosecutions. When the person is incarcerated, we maintain contact in order to monitor their prison conditions and to ensure that their rights are not violated. During the month of Ramadan, we provide an annual gift to their commissary accounts. We provide various resources for prisoners, such as legal support, a quarterly newsletter, reading materials, a pen pal program, and we tell their stories. Finally, we write letters to judges and wardens, our senators and representatives on Capitol Hill, and advocate for policy change, including the passage of our bill that would reverse unfair convictions. We need help from the public to continue this important work.

The Coalition for Civil Freedoms (CCF) is a survivor-led nonprofit organization dedicated to ending the abuses of the U.S. domestic "War on Terror." Founded in 2010, CCF is a coalition of civil liberties and human rights organizations that challenges preemptive prosecution and the post-9/11 targeting, surveillance, and criminalization of Muslim communities. CCF’s core areas of work include education and outreach, prisoner and family support, legal services, grassroots advocacy, policy, and research. We work to amplify the voices of those directly impacted and empower them to advocate for meaningful change. Through direct action, civic engagement, and public awareness campaigns, CCF mobilizes communities to transform the criminal legal system to one built on fairness and equality. Our vision for justice is freedom for political prisoners, an end to political repression, and the protection of the rights of all people.
We build a movement on the outside for freedom of those inside.
