POSTPONED: "Torture: Too High a Cost"

UPDATE: Due to unforeseen circumstances, this event has been postponed until September. We will re-post the event details when a new date is confirmed. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Human Rights USA, in collaboration with Amnesty International-American University chapter and the United Nations Association-National Capital Area, is proud to present a film screening of "Torture on Trial," followed by a panel event on the damaging and costly impact of torture committed during the 'war on terror,' the harmful effects on victims and their families, and the need for accountability.

Our panel features three prominent D.C.-area human rights advocates:

-Harold Nelson, Torture Abolition Support and Survivors Coalition
-Tom Parker, Amnesty International USA
-Shaikh Shaker El-Sayed, Universal Justice Foundation

The panel will be moderated by Colleen Costello, attorney for the Human Rights & Anti-Terrorism Project at Human Rights USA.

Please join us! *Food and refreshments will be provided*
