Ending U.S.-Sponsored Torture

NRCAT’s Ending U.S.-Sponsored Torture program is focused on permanently ending the use of torture and cruel treatment as interrogation techniques. NRCAT educates faith communities about the importance of closing the detention center at Guantanamo Bay and ending indefinite detention. NRCAT also calls for more information about the U.S. torture program to be made public, confronts bigotry against Muslims, supports efforts to resettle refugees in the U.S., and supports transparency with respect the U.S. use of drones.

Population(s) Served

NRCAT’s Ending Torture in U.S. Prisons program is focused on ending the torture of solitary confinement in U.S. prisons, jails, and detention centers. NRCAT mobilizes religious communities in support of humane alternatives to prolonged solitary confinement through legislative and administrative reforms, to promote a moral call for therapeutic interventions and humane alternatives that prioritize the health and well-being of incarcerated people and corrections staff. NRCAT engages faith communities in education through resources including the NRCAT documentary, “Torture in Our Name,” and NRCAT’s solitary confinement replica cell experience. NRCAT presents testimony at hearings, ensures a faith presence at accountability meetings with corrections officials, and equips faith leadership in campaigns and vigils nationwide.
