International Justice Day on July 17, 2010 has officially come to an end.  It was a wonderful day filled with celebrations across the United States and around the world.  We succeeded in our goal of celebrating international criminal justice, the achievements of the International Criminal Court and, of course, remembering victims of atrocity crimes.

We would like to thank all of you who came out to celebrate July 17 – International Justice Day wouldn’t be possible without the support of civil society.  If you hosted an event and would like to submit a description or media (i.e. photos) from the event please contact is at

On July 17 americans from all over the country told Obama to finish the policy on the ICC he began, and we thank all of you who sent letters.  If you haven’t done so already, its not too late to urge the administration toward action on the ICC.  Click here for the action alert.

Thank you all again and a belated Happy International Justice Day!
