Petition the Supreme Court to Restore Civil Rights


Reverse the US Supreme Court decision
to set aside 
the right to remain silent

In a 5-4 ruling, the justices held that a person no longer has the right to remain silent as guaranteed by the Fifth Amendment. In relevant part, the Fifth Amendment mandates that no one “shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself.” 

Our Founding Fathers understood how vital the right against self-incrimination was to the pursuit of justice. This protection from self-incrimination has had long and expansive historical development and is the essential mainstay of our adversary system. 

The court has time to correct this error. Please do so to preserve the integrity of US jurisprudence. Our Bill of Rights and the US Constitution hang in the balance.

Sign the petiton!
Stand up and fight back!
