NRCAT and T'ruah (formerly Rabbis for Human Rights-North America) held a webinar with Juan Mendez on December 6, 2012 to commemorate Human Rights Day. Juan Mendez is the UN Special Rapporteur on Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment. The webinar spoke about the Optional Protocol to the Convention Against Torture, solitary confinement, and Mr. Mendez's work on prolonged solitary confinement.
