Torture is wrong. Hang a banner. Spread the word.

The ICPJ Iraq Next Steps Committee is joining the National Religious Campaign Against Torture (NRCAT) in making June 2008 the month for Banners Across America! NRCAT is asking congregations of all sizes, from every state, and all faiths, to join in a public witness against torture by displaying a banner outside their place of worship during Torture Awareness Month June 2008. Please join with other congregations across Washtenaw County and across the country to speak out on this important moral issue. Download the sign up form to order your banner now! The cost is $155 for a 3’x 9’ banner.
