Ashoka Fellow
United States
Fellow Since 2005
    This description of Gerald Gray's work was prepared when Gerald Gray was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2005.
    Gerald Gray is developing a national system in the U.S. to find torturers and bring them to account, one that involves an interconnected set of projects in law, psychology, journalism, investigation, research, education, and policy development. Using political torture as the organizing focus to create a sufficient public conscience and ensure consistent action against violators of human rights, Jerry aims to create a more civil, empathetic society and set a high standard for the world by demonstrating that torture will not be tolerated in America.
