TASSC International

The Torture Abolition and Survivors Support Coalition International aims to end the practice of torture wherever it occurs and support survivors as they empower themselves, their families, and their communities wherever they are.

TASSC takes an integrated and survivor-centered approach to its work with survivors of torture. All of our staff work with survivors through a trauma-informed and strength-based perspective, focusing on resilience and each survivor’s own strengths as they move toward a brighter future. We work with, not for survivors as they move toward achieving their goals. Our interdisciplinary model also allows for coordination of care that addresses all aspects of a survivor’s wellbeing – from community and social connection, to legal, psychological, and medical support. TASSC addresses the wide range of each survivor's physical and emotional needs and offers support at each step as they find the care and strength they need to recover.
