Watch the video above to learn how North Carolina was part of the U.S. rendition and torture program carried out in the years following 9/11.
The North Carolina Commission of Inquiry on Torture is a citizen-driven, non-partisan truth commission established to investigate the state’s role in torture and to issue a report with findings and recommendations. NCCIT is holding public hearings in Raleigh, NC on November 30 – December 1 to receive witness testimony. The 11 commissioners will hear from legal experts, doctors, state officials and torture survivors.
We need your help to ensure the hearings are a success and have an impact beyond the state. Financial support for the hearings will increase the reach and effectiveness by going toward:
- High-quality international teleconferencing to bring the live testimony of those directly affected by U.S. torture into the hearing room.
- Expanding the capacity of the commission by hiring outside counsel and investigators to research facts surrounding North Carolina’s involvement.
- Airfares and lodging for prominent witnesses from the UK and other parts of the U.S.
- Paid and free media, including announcements in North Carolina media to invite testimony from local citizens and hearing attendance.

Thank you for your contribution. It will enhance the work of the Commissioners as they encourage North Carolina to become a human rights leader going forward and ensure our state is never again used in a supply chain for torture.
