Support work to end torture this June 18th Justice Sunday

Our Justice Sunday collection this month will go to support the North Carolina Commission of Inquiry on Torture (NCCIT). All undesignated funds collected this Sunday, June 18th will go to support the work of NCCIT, a registered 501(c)(3) organization. Cash and checks are accepted and checks may be made out to UUFR with “June Justice Sunday” in the memo line.

NCCIT seeks accountability for our state’s involvement in torture. Its mission is to address the issue of torture and lack of government transparency surrounding North Carolina’s role in the United States’ Rendition/Detention/Interrogation (RDI) program by crafting a model of accountability and awareness that can inspire efforts in other states and beyond. NCCIT advocates for new state and federal policies that affirm our obligation to comply with norms of the Convention Against Torture, fulfills our responsibilities to torture survivors, and prevents future engagement of state resources in torture.
