Call for New Information on Torture to be Made Public

During the next few months, the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence is likely to finish the report on their investigation into our past interrogation practices.  Ask members of your faith community to join you in signing petitions or postcards, asking that this report be made public.

Postcards can be mailed individually or collected and delivered to your Senators’ offices.  You can deliver signed petitions to your Senators’ offices or send them to NRCAT (address on the petition), and our policy staff will deliver them to your Senators’ offices.

Tell us about your plans !  And if you have a photo of your event/activity to share, we would be eager to post it on NRCAT’s Facebook page. Please send photos to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .
