At CVT, we approach our advocacy work from a perspective that is different from our human rights colleagues. We are not attorneys; we are healers. We give voice to people who were purposely silenced by the perpetrators of torture. We are the only human rights advocacy group that is grounded in more than two decades of helping individual torture survivors heal from their wounds and rebuild their lives. Having extended care to more than 25,000 survivors, CVT has a unique level of knowledge, experience and credibility.
