Join the National Religious Campaign Against Torture (NRCAT) and congregations across the country in marking Torture Awareness Month this June. Under the theme “2012 – Confronting the Culture of Torture,” NRCAT has provided a variety of resources and suggested activities that congregations can use throughout the month. Worship resources; DVDs with discussion guides; banners, posters and bumper stickers; and resources for grassroots advocacy are all available at www.nrcat.org/tam2012.
NRCAT is also helping to coordinate planning for joint efforts with other human rights and religious organizations, including a march in Washington, DC, on Sunday afternoon, June 24, and local vigils on Tuesday, June 26, which is the UN International Day in Support of Torture Victims. For more information, see www.nrcat.org/tam-coalition.
