Ending the Crime of Torture

 Speaker: Beza

 
Beza is a professional physicist who was tortured in Ethiopia. He is a member of the Torture Abolition and Survivors Support Coalition International (TASSC) and will speak for the first time about his experience as a torture survivor. The mission of TASSC, the only organization founded by and for torture survivors, is to end the practice of torture wherever it occurs and to empower survivors, their families and communities wherever they are.
 
Please join TASSC in celebrating its 17th Annual June Survivors’ Week from June 25th to June 29th in D.C. focusing on the theme “Building Bridges Together”.  During the week TASSC will have different workshops, a human rights training, a Congressional visit, and a 12 hour vigil on June 28 from 7:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m. at Lafayette Park across from the White House. There will also be a hearing at the Tom Lantos Human Rights Commission. Survivors and prominent human rights experts will speak at the workshops and at the Tom Lantos Commission.
