The Quaker Initiative to End Torture is a spiritual work to end the worst that humans do to one another. We hope the information and resources here will help you to join the efforts of many to end torture as a practice, a tradition, and a policy of governments. There is much good that needs doing. This work needs many good people to come forward with reverence to shed mercy and Light to all corners. A call for truth and a shared sense of humanity will move us further along.
This website offers information and resources for learning and taking action. Our hope is that Friends and others will come together in this work as the next great abolition movement in the United States. We want to stop torture as policy and practice forever.
As this field of work is ever changing, we hope you will check this website often for information updates as well as our blog for news stories. Please learn and choose ways to help. This is an historic time for America on this topic and large change is possible. But it may well take more than one generation of Quakers to carry this work.
Ending torture is a good spiritual work to give yourself to. We welcome your donations and all efforts you can make locally.
