Torture is an act committed by a person acting for the political group in power and justified by law. The person in power inflicts severe physical and/or mental pain on individuals because of their political beliefs, religion, race, ethnicity, or membership in a social group. A person may be beaten, deprived of food and water, burned, humiliated, raped, and /or forced to watch while others are being tortured, killed or harmed through inhumane and horrible acts.

If you have experienced torture, please contact us. The Trauma Recovery Center will help you build a life upon personal strengths and courage with support and care.
