Dr. Simon Adams, Executive Director, Global Centre for the Responsibility to Protect
"Globally, human rights are under attack. There are currently more people displaced by war, conflict and persecution than at any time since WW2 - almost 60 million in total. Too many of these refugees have direct experience of torture and illegal detention. Transcendence tells the stories of torture survivors as they try to rebuild their lives in societies far from home."
"Transcendence centers on Bellevue Program for Survivors of Torture, which does the beautiful work of healing people and rebuilding lives torn apart by torture and war. I was so proud to see them in action, and to meet their amazing clients and staff. This program will go on to rebuild lives for many years, and continue to make our world a better, safer place. "
