  • Survivor Testimony: Hear directly from a survivor of torture, who will share their personal story and the impact of support and advocacy on their journey to recovery.

  • Networking and Refreshments to conclude the evening, providing an opportunity for attendees to connect and discuss further actions.

This event is an opportunity for all individuals and communities who wish to advocate for human rights and stand against torture. Everyone has a role to play in promoting justice and supporting survivors.
