Ten Against Torture

President Obama reads 10 hand-picked letters every day to get a glimpse of what's on people's minds and in their hearts.

Amnesty International has compiled powerful letters written by 10 influential thinkers – from an exiled poet to a former military interrogator to an esteemed actor and activist – that boldly make the case against torture.

Read the Ten Against Torture letters and send the one you find most moving to President Obama.

Note: Due to the excitement generated around this campaign, we have decided to include more inspiring letters below in addition to the original 10.

Select the letter you would like to forward to President Obama, then add your note of introduction.
