Co-sponsors include: National Religious Campaign Against Torture, Amnesty International USA, Busboys and Poets, Center for Victims of Torture, Church of the Brethren Office of Public Witness, Disciples Justice Action Network, Franciscan Action Network, Islamic Society of North America, Justice and Witness Ministries, United Church of Christ, Maryknoll Global Concerns, Methodist Federation for Social Action, Teaching for Change, Torture Abolition and Survivors Support Coalition, and Witness Against Torture.

In the 25 years I've known Rebecca Gordon, she has brought many critical issues to the forefront for public debate.  Her new book details the history and current practice of U.S.-sponsored torture, and argues that without urgent moral action, nothing less than the soul of the nation is at stake.  At her reading, she will break it down, as she always does, in ways that are useful to everyday activists working on torture in U.S. prisons, police accountability, racism, and CIA torture. 

For questions please contact Katie Hunter at khunter@nrcat.org or 202-547-1920.
