North Carolina Commission of Inquiry on Torture
Seeking accountability for our state's role in extraordinary rendition

The North Carolina Commission of Inquiry on Torture is hiring a half-time organizer.

We are seeking applicants who are good at reaching out, well-organized, team players, and passionate about human rights. Please view the job description.

This is a great time to get involved in torture accountability work! Thanks to release of the Senate torture report, people are paying attention and asking what should be done.

Focused as it is on state and county responsibility for national and international human rights violations, our citizen-driven project will show how all Americans have both a duty and an opportunity to take action on torture. Our North Carolina project will serve as a model for other accountability efforts.

For more information and to apply, please send a letter of interest and a resume to NC Commission of Inquiry on Torture.


In April 2010, a three-day Weaving a Net of Accountability conference in Durham, NC focused on achieving accountability for North Carolina's role in extraordinary rendition and the U.S.-led torture in the post-9/11 era. The conference was sponsored by North Carolina Stop Torture Now, the Duke Human Rights Center, the Immigration & Human Rights Policy Clinic at the University of North Carolina School of Law and the International Human Rights Law Society at Duke University Law School.

With guidance from locally and nationally recognized authorities on transitional justice and human rights, a proposed framework has been developed for a citizen-led commission of inquiry on North Carolina's role in extraordinary rendition and torture.

The background material explains extraordinary rendition and torture and the use of North Carolina facilities to enable the extradition of detainees to foreign sites for interrogation and torture. See the Commission's statement of intent and consider endorsing the work of the Commission.
