from the National Religious Campaign Against Torture
In the new toolkit, “Exposing the Truth of U.S. Torture: Restoring Human Dignity,” you will find resources to help you mark June as Torture Awareness Month, including:
- Ideas for what you can do during the month, including information on ordering “No Doubt, It Was Torture,” NRCAT’s 11-minute film that explains why the faith community cares about making the information about torture public. We encourage screenings and discussion (we have a study guide available) of the issue by people of faith.
- Worship resources, including sermon notes and prayers, meditations, and poems.
- A factsheet and educational resources on the Senate Intelligence Committee’s Torture Report. The Committee voted on April 3, 2014 to release to the public the report’s 400 page executive summary and findings.
- A bulletin insert with an interfaith prayer on one side and educational material on the other.
- A customizable poster to help you promote Torture Awareness Month.
- A petition for you to use to collect signatures in your congregation or community.
- A link to NRCAT’s action center for you to share with your friends and community.
Join us in honoring survivors of torture, taking action to ensure that the truth of the clandestine U.S. torture program after 9/11 is made public, and praying for national repentance and healing toward the restoration of human dignity for all.
Together we can learn, pray and act to make sure that we “Expose the Truth of U.S. Torture and Restore Human Dignity”.
