Torture IS an American Value: A Conversation with Survivors of Torture


Add to My Calendar Friday, June 26, 2020 1:00pm to 2:30pm


Join the Center for Constitutional Rights, Justice for Muslims Collective, School of the Americas Watch, and Witness Against Torture for a virtual conversation to mark the United Nations International Day in Support of Victims of Torture. 

Mohamedou Slahi, a Guantánamo Bay prison survivor
Mark Clements, a survivor of Chicago police torture
Shaíra Sepúlveda, a survivor of the U.S.-supported Chilean dictatorship

While torture is often framed as something that happens in other parts of the world, this panel will highlight the history and continued practice of torture by the United States, outline what accountability can look like, and share what it will take to end the practice in the United States and abroad. 

You can register for the conversation on the Zoom event page
