NC No Torture Project Coordinator

Categories:

Position: Project Coordinator – Communities of Faith Seek Confession, Repentance, and Forgiveness for Our State’s Role in Torture.

Council Description
With more than eight decades of progressive activism, the North Carolina Council of Churches remains the leading faith-based ecumenical voice for justice advocacy in North Carolina. We are particularly concerned about issues related to health care, immigration, care of creation, public education, gun violence, voting rights, food security, and peace. The Council embraces ethnic, racial, gender, and sexual diversity, while standing within the Christian faith.

Peace Committee & Anti-Torture Work
The Council has always made peace a priority in our programs. The Council’s Peace Committee is working to help North Carolinians live out the call to peace, from pursuing ways that we can be more civil in our personal dialogue to advocating for solutions to gun violence. Since 2006, the Council has participated actively in North Carolina’s citizen quest for transparency and accountability for our state’s role in the U.S. torture program. We know that those identified by our government’s policies of “rendition,” secret detention, torture, and drone killings are Muslim people. Acknowledgement, repentance and redress will be an important step toward interfaith reconciliation.

Job Responsibilities
Primary responsibilities include coordinating and implementing a 9-month project to promote and help implement the recommendations of the NC Commission of Inquiry on Torture (NCCIT). The NCCIT is a non-governmental, non-partisan body that is conducting a citizen-initiated inquiry into North Carolina’s role in the U.S. post-9/11 torture program. The NCCIT’s report, a year in the making, will be publicly released on September 27, 2018.
