In order to help you pass a similar resolution in your city, the Illinois Coalition Against Torture (ICAT) has prepared this “How To Guide” It is geared to helping anti-torture activists and human rights supporters pass an anti-torture resolution where you live. We hope that it will help you to mobilize others to work to end U.S. government torture on the local, state, and federal level. If you have any suggestions for ways to improve this guide or any questions about our work, please contact us.
