Reckoning with Torture: Memos and Testimonies from the "War on Terror" is a public education program designed to draw attention to the torture and abuse of detainees in U.S. custody. The ACLU and the PEN American Center have been sponsoring public readings of these documents and are encouraging individuals and groups to film their own readings and to upload videos to the Reckoning with Torture website. An anthology of these videos will be compiled and posted online. Hosting a local event that brings attention to the torture and abuse of detainees since 9/11 will help build support for a full investigation of the torture program and ensure that such atrocities are not repeated again.
