June is Torture Awareness Month


June is Torture Awareness Month

On June 26, 1987 the Convention against Torture entered into force, and thus June 26th has been designated as a day to help victims of torture. This month, interfaith organizations partner with civil and human rights advocates to promote awareness of the abhorrent injustice of torture. The National Religious Campaign Against Torture (NRCAT) also invites us choose a day for a 23-hour fast for a Torture Free World.
