We are an inter-religious membership organization modeled on the National Religious Campaign Against Torture. We are supported by our members, and we work in conjunction with the national campaign.
What Do We Want?
IAHR works for an end to torture in four areas:
1. To ensure that U.S.-sponsored torture of detainees never happens again.
2. To end the use of torture in U.S. prisons and detention facilities, in particular the use of prolonged solitary confinement.
3. To end U.S. support (direct or indirect) of any country that engages in torture
4. To end the bigotry and hatred that promotes the practice and acceptance of torture against religiously, ethnically and other targeted groups, with a specific focus on Islamophobia.
