Countdown to End Torture

Nrcat_sticker2The National Coalition against Torture has launched the Countdown to End Torture campaign. The goal of the campaign is to encourage President-elect Barack Obama to end U.S.-sponsored torture on his first day in office by issuing an executive order based on the Declaration of Principles developed by the coalition. 

Support for this effort includes signing the Declaration of Principles and using an interfaith prayer and bulletin insert in a worship service during the ten-day period between January 11th and January 20th.
NRCAT will hold a press conference on Wednesday, January 14, with national interfaith religious leaders urging President-elect Obama to issue an executive order on his first day in office.  We want to highlight the significant number of faith communities across the country that are joining together in this Countdown.
The 218th General Assembly (2008) of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) voted to affirm the Declaration of Principles.
