The National Religious Campaign Against Torture (NRCAT) shares:
June is Torture Awareness Month – a time to recommit as people of faith to end torture in our backyards and around the world. This year, our theme is “Healing a Culture of Torture,” encompassing the need to reflect, pray, and act in light of the deep physical and spiritual harm caused by torture. The International Day in Support of Victims of Torture was named by the United Nations in June 26, 1997 to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the date that the Convention Against Torture came into force. Torture Awareness Month honors that day and extends the campaign throughout the month of June. (source)
