Stop Prisoner rape
A national 501(c)(3) human rights organization, SPR works to put an end to sexual violence against men, women, and youth in all forms of detention. To achieve this goal, SPR seeks to: engender policies that ensure government accountability for prisoner rape; change ill-informed and flippant public attitudes toward sexual assault behind bars; and promote access to resources for survivors of this type of violence. More than a quarter century after its inception, SPR remains the only organization in the country dedicated exclusively to the elimination of prisoner rape.

Cageprisoners.com is a non-sectarian Islamic human rights website that exists solely to raise awareness of the plight of the prisoners at Guantanamo Bay and other detainees held as part of the War on Terror. The web-site is not aligned to any Islamic group or organisation. The site was launched in October 2003 during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan by individual Muslim volunteers who came together for the reasons set out below. The inspiration for the web-site came from two other excellent web-sites on the cage prisoners: http://www.alasra.org (in Arabic) and http://www.prisonerofwest.org. We have the backing of both Muslim and non-Muslim lawyers, activists, former detainees, families of prisoners and academics.
