Why Now? As vocal public opposition to torture and ill-treatment grows, so does evidence that the U.S. continues to use torture and ill-treatment. In the past several months, new allegations of torture have emerged from Guantanamo Bay, Iraq, Afghanistan and in secret U.S. detention centers around the world, indicating that we must redouble our anti-torture efforts.

How Can I Help Stop Torture in 2006? Grassroots activism to stop torture and ill-treatment has had a tremendous impact over the past few months. When the Denounce Torture Initiative was launched this past spring, we had two aims. First, to educate a broad spectrum of people living in America about the scope of abuses being committed by the U.S. government in the name of the “war on terror.” Second, to galvanize people to take action to stop the abuses and hold perpetrators throughout the chain of command accountable.

We have been amazed by the response:

* More than 250,000 actions urging the President and Congress to stop the use of torture and ill-treatment.

* Over 200 delegations across America lobbying against torture in the district offices of members of Congress.

* Hundreds of community teach-ins to educate people across the country about the use of torture and ill-treatment by agents of the U.S. government.

* Intense grassroots phone campaigns supporting the Anti-Torture Amendment introduced by Senator McCain.

What's my next step? Click here to make your new year's resolution today.

The Denounce Torture Initiative is committed to helping you keep your resolution by giving you tools for effective action against torture in the "war on terror," based on your own level of commitment and the amount of time you have available.

Many thanks for all you have done. We look forward to working with you in 2006 to stop torture and ill-treatment!
