Torture Destroys Us All Campaign

Minnesota Advocates Staff and Volunteers at the Minnesota State Fair
Torture Destroys Us All is a traveling exhibit of pictures and quotes developed by Minnesota Advocates. The purpose of the exhibit is twofold: (1) to join the world in commemorating the ratification of the U.N. Convention Against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment and the suffering and courage of torture victims and survivors worldwide; and, (2) to encourage the people of the United States to speak boldly in condemnation of torture and insist that our government pursue increasingly higher standards in its human rights practices.
