Power of Healing

On May 14, we heard loud and clear from Governor Pritzker and Secretary Clinton that we must stand together to champion the rights of survivors of torture. We celebrated the resilience of three incredible women and honored Peter Kovler, founder of the Marjorie Kovler Center, with the Robert H. Kirschner Award for Global Activism. Thank you for standing in solidarity with us! For photos from Power of Healing 2019, please click HERE.
