Join the Human Rights Program on November 12 as it co-sponsors two events in the Twin Cities to bring attention to the role of torture in the United States' domestic and foreign policies following the September 11 attacks.

The first event, "US Torture: Insider Perspectives on the Pursuit of Ethics and Justice" will take place at Hamline University from 11:30 AM to 12:30 PM and host CIA whistleblower John Kiriakou and psychologist Bradley Olson who will speak on the conflicting role of torture in the balance of ethics and justice.

At 3:00 PM, the University of Minnesota will host "Torture: Back in the Spotlight and How to Keep it There." John Kiriakou and Bradley Olson will lead this event as they focus on the manner with which torture is dealt and the ways in which it is promoted to and maintains a role in public and political discourse. Both events are free and open to the public.
