Sami Baloch Badini from Balochistan, Pakistan, and Janel Martial Siewe Kwegue from Cameroon, are members of the Torture Abolition and Survivors Support Coalition International (TASSC) and will speak about their experience as torture survivors. 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 us for this very important program.
