The Council is pleased to be co-sponsoring Tuesday evening’s program featuring Dr. Gushee, a leading faith-based advocate for an end to torture by our country. The topic for the presentation is “Coming to Terms with Torture: Truth, Accountability, and Renunciation,” and Dr. Gushee will be joined by Luke Powery, Dean of the Chapel at Duke, and Christina Cowger, coordinator for NC Stop Torture Now.
June is Torture Awareness Month. The presentation recognizes that and is also part of the Council’s ongoing effort to secure release of the report by the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence regarding the treatment of detainees following 9/11. The program, from 7:00 until 8:30 p.m., will be followed by a reception for Dr. Gushee. It takes place at Pullen Memorial Baptist Church, 1801 Hillsborough Street, Raleigh.
