Contact your Members of Congress and Urge them to Support the President's Plan

Today the Obama Administration released its plan for shuttering the detention facility at Guantanamo Bay. With his final term coming to a close, this plan represents President Obama’s last chance to uphold his promise to close Gitmo before he leaves office. 

The continued operation of Gitmo is costly, threatens our national security, and harms America’s global reputation as a beacon for human rights.

The administration has shown it is willing to take action to shutter Guantanamo, now it is up to Congress to turn this plan into reality.
