Quaker Initiative to End Torture

The Quaker Initiative to End Torture (QUIT) celebrates 17 years as an educational nonprofit sharing information on the history, policy, and practice of U.S. torture.

A website offers background resources, and a Facebook page shares news of the past, present, and future on this very difficult topic. Torture continues to be one of the most reviled political and social issues, capturing very little public interest. According to the New York Times, the prison at Guantánamo Bay costs an estimated $13 million a year per prisoner—over $500 million a year total. QUIT will continue to post news from worldwide sources to keep Friends informed and aware of the worst humans do to one another.
