Torture Victims Relief Act

First passed in 1998, TVRA has received bipartisan support throughout its legislative history from Members of Congress across the country. Please join us and torture rehabilitation programs around the country in advocating for continued support of this important work by reauthorization of TVRA.

Washington D.C. Office

In our nation’s capital, we show policy makers that there is hope, that survivors can heal from their deep wounds and reclaim their lives.  Our Washington office works with members of Congress to promote funding to extend care to survivors in the United States and abroad. Since 2000, CVT has secured annual appropriations to the point where the United States is now the world’s largest donor to torture survivor rehabilitation programs.
