The International Day in Support of Victims of Torture (June 26), enacted by the United Nations, is a day to observe what is being done and what still needs to be done to help survivors rebuild their lives and to end torture. Join Survivors International (http://www.survivorsintl.org/), Amnesty International (http://www.amnesty.org/) & Health Professionals Against Torture (http://www.hpatcoalition.org/) on June 23rd for a film screening!

The Response is a courtroom drama based on the actual transcripts of the Guantanamo Bay military tribunals. Read more about the film here: http://www.theresponsemovie.com/
