Torture Update

I learned this morning that a group of religious leaders went to the White House yesterday to meet with members of the Obama Administration and ask for a Commission of Inquiry. They brought a letter signed by (among others) the Most Reverend Dr. Katharine Jefferts Schori! I was pleased and surprised to see it. The full text of the letter is here.

Meanwhile, June is Torture Awareness Month. You'll notice I changed the widget in the top left of the blog to reflect this. Just so's you know, the United Nations International Day in Support of Victims of Torture is on Friday, June 26, two weeks from today. I'll keep you posted.
