USAforICC.org is dedicated to building U.S. support for the International Criminal Court (ICC) in order to bring to justice criminals responsible for war crimes, crimes against humanity, and genocide when nations will not or cannot. The site was created to generate grassroots support for the ICC and make it easy for supporters to locate information and advocacy options.
Constituent contact is vital to the legislative process. National polls consistently find that between 60-70% of Americans support the U.S. joining the ICC, but our leaders do not hear enough from these pro-ICC constituents. For example, after Congress passed the anti-ICC American Servicemembers Protection Act (ASPA) in 2002, some congressional staffers admitted that anti-ICC letters played a key role in their members’ decision to support ASPA. Some offices received as few as 15 or 25 such letters, but they made a difference because there were virtually no pro-ICC letters to balance them out. This is why we need your voice, too.
