By educating yourself about torture survivors, you are already helping to spread awareness about this issue. Since most healing centers are non-profits, donations help them to expand their services and better assist more survivors. You can also help by advocating against torture both in the U.S. and abroad by contacting your elected representatives and voicing your concern. One of the most important things you can do to help is to be aware of current events and the needs of torture survivors in your community. Follow HealTorture on Twitter and Facebook to stay up-to-date about the needs of survivor and refugee communities.
