"We are not to simply bandage the wounds of victims beneath the wheels of injustice,
we are to drive a spoke into the wheel itself." Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Letters and Papers from Prison (1943-1945)

UN Geneva

What's this about?


What did we do?

A Californian based law firm, the National Centre for Lesbian Rights (NCLR) submitted documentary information to the United Nations treaty Committee Against Torture, claiming that by failing to outlaw the practice of ‘Conversion Therapy,’ America violates its compliance with the Convention Against Torture to which it is a signatory. The submission received attention at an event at the UN Committee's session in Geneva on 11 - 13 November 2014.
