Vince Warren

Vince oversees CCR's groundbreaking litigation and advocacy work, which includes combating the illegal expansion of presidential power and policies such as illegal detention at Guantanamo, rendition, torture and warrantless wiretapping; holding corporations and government officials accountable for human rights abuses; and, challenging racial injustice and mass incarceration. Vince has spearheaded a public campaign, "Beyond Guantanamo: Rescue the Constitution," coinciding with CCR's landmark Supreme Court victory in Al Odah v. US and Boumediene v. Bush, which held that the detainees at Guantanamo Bay have a constitutional right to the writ of habeas corpus. Prior to his tenure at CCR, Vince held the position of national senior staff attorney with the American Civil Liberties Union, where he led constitutional and impact litigation to advance civil rights and liberties.

Laura Raymond is an education and outreach associate for CCR.
