National Religious Campaign Against Torture (NRCAT)
The Unitarian Universalist Association is a proud partner of the National Religious Campaign Against Torture. Under the banner of NRCAT many denominations, congregations, and religious individuals have joined together on a non-partisan basis in profound opposition to torture and cruel and inhuman practices by anyone for any purpose.
Unitarian Universalists Service Committete (UUSC)'s STOP Campaign
The UUSC initiated its Stop Torture Permanently (STOP) Campaign in response to the human rights crisis created by the U.S. torture and abuse of detainees in Afghanistan, Iraq, and Guantánamo Bay. The STOP Campaign began its efforts with a formal statement in the New York Times on June 25, 2004. The STOP Campaign primarily focuses on the official authorization and use of torture, whether mental or physical, direct or "by proxy," by United States officials, agents, military personnel, and contractors abroad. The UUSC is also a member of NRCAT.
