|Torture Awareness Month - June|
Confronting the Culture of Torture
Torture Awareness Month 2012
Torture has taken root in American culture and in Americans’ moral consciousness. Since 9/11, we have become a people who:
Torture is always wrong. It is illegal, inhumane and intolerable. Torture violates the inherent dignity of man which all religions hold as the highest ideal. Torture degrades everyone involved—perpetrator, victims and witnesses alike.
Join the National Religious Campaign Against Torture and our partner organizations during the month of June for “Confronting the Culture of Torture,” our 2012 Torture Awareness Month campaign. Help NRCAT reach its goal of ending torture in U.S. policy, practice and culture by organizing an activity for your congregation or joining us at public events throughout June and bearing public witness against torture. You can also support our mission with a tax-deductible gift.
