Sign Petition Endorsing an Executive Order to Ban Torture

The National Religious Campaign Against Torture, in alliance with Evangelicals for Human Rights and the Center for Victims of Torture, launched an effort that calls upon the President to issue an executive order banning torture based on six core principles embodied in a Declaration of Principles. The groups are calling this effort the "Campaign to Ban Torture."

Since the success of this effort depends upon thousands of people of faith and other opponents of torture joining together to endorse the Declaration of Principles, please endorse the Declaration.

Institutions can endorse here. The General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church (USA) and other religious bodies have endorsed.
