Oppose Torture and Support our Federal Courts


The Senate will vote soon on two provisions, one that would allow for torture, and a second that will reinstate the ability for federal criminal courts to try many suspected terrorists.  The first provision would make us less safe and undermine the values that have made our nation strong while the second will strengthen our national security and reinforce support for American ideals.

Federal courts and local law enforcement—as well as the country's ideals—are our great assets in the struggle against terrorism. Help us defend core freedoms and what works in the country's counterterrorism effort.

Help us improve this bill by sending a letter to your Senator now. Ask your Senators to oppose torture and support our federal courts
