Where We Work
The Center for Victims of Torture began as a small torture rehabilitation center in America's midwest. Today we are an international organization whose healing, training, research and advocacy initiatives have global impact.
We provide healing to torture survivors in Minnesota, Africa and the Middle East. We train partners across the United States and in every region of the world. In Washington D.C., we bring the voice of survivors to America’s capitol. Our work with survivors taught us new ways to advocate for human rights, and we share that learning by promoting tactical innovation and strategic thinking within the international human rights community.
Wherever we work, our focus is on helping survivors rebuild lives of dignity, restoring communities, and working for a world in which torture ceases to exist.
