Torture’s long term effects can be devastating. Dr. Mary Fabri is a clinical psychologist and senior director at the Marjorie Kovler Center — the pioneering torture treatment center that’s operated in Chicago for more than 25 years. We’ll speak with her, as well as filmmakers Kathy Berger and Innes Summer, who have a new film project called Beneath the Blindfold that explores the lives of torture survivors.

Heartland Alliance’s Marjorie Kovler Center is hosting its second annual benefit - a spring luncheon and presentation of the Robert Kirschner Award for Global Activism.
