Torture Abolition and Survivors Support Coalition


Our mission is to end the practice of torture wherever it occurs and support survivors as they empower themselves, their families and communities wherever they are.


TASSC Run for Strength

Thank you to everyone who attended yesterday at Wheaton Regional Park. We had a great turnout and are so thrilled with how many staff, supporters and survivors joined us for our first Run for Strength. We had over 100 attendees, which included 60 runners,  around 15 walkers and over 25 staff members and race-day volunteers. In total, we raised over $3,000 - which was made possible through race registration and raffle sales. Thank you to everyone who registered, participated and sponsored.

Please know that you are making a true difference in the lives of the survivors of torture TASSC supports! You can see the results of the 5K run here.
