Take Action on Torture

June 24th, 2011

June 26th is United Nations International Day in Support of Victims of Torture. Several years ago, religious and human rights organizations in the United States declared the month of June to be Torture Awareness Month as a way to provide greater visibility to this issue and provide an opportunity for coordinated actions across the country.

Over the next few months, the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence is expected to finish a report on their investigation into past interrogation practices by the US military and US government agencies. Ask members of your faith community to join you in signing petitions or postcards, asking that this report be made public. See The National Religious Campaign Against Torture (NRCAT) for postcards which you can use.

NRCAT has also prepared Sample Sermons to be used during this period to help raise awareness about torture:
