ACLU And PEN American Center Present Face To Face: Confronting The Torturers On April 29 In New York
With mounting evidence that the United States tortured hundreds of detainees in the "War on Terror," people of conscience everywhere are watching to see if those who ordered and carried out the abuse will be held accountable. Many of those watching are in countries that have successfully confronted their own legacies of torture and human rights abuses. The event will feature readings from documentary and imaginative literature from around the world depicting people standing face-to-face with their torturers, both literally and figuratively.
