National Religious Coalition Against Torture
Formed at a conference a month ago, the organization fills a much-needed role by emphasizing the inadequacy of Congressional and administration response so far to revelations of U.S. torture.

Sign the statement, make a contribution, and encourage others in your church and community to join you. As the statement asks,
