The convocation will explore North Carolina’s connection, through the use of its public airports, a local airline (Aero Contractors), and locally based employees of the airline, to the CIA’s Rendition, Detention, and Interrogation (RDI) program that began after the 9/11 attacks. Muslim people were kidnapped, bound, and transported to CIA black sites and to foreign countries, where they were held indefinitely without charges and were tortured. Most were innocent of any offense.
NC Commission of Inquiry on Torture Members The Rev. Ben Boswell, Dr. Christina Cowger, and Mrs. Allyson Caison. along with NC Council of Churches Program Coordinator of NC No Torture, The Rev. Para Drake will talk about how people of faith and conscience have become involved in seeking accountability and redress for those harmed by the program and how you may encourage accountability for those actions.
