2011: PT Recognized in Charles Strozier’s New Book

“…I survey in my concluding chapter the many 9/11 survivor and family groups. I found that at best most such groups are politically centrist and cautious; others have been avowedly pro-war abroad and assertively in support of domestic policies that compromise our freedoms in the false name of fighting terrorism. Only ‘September 11th Families for Peaceful Tomorrows’ has consistently and courageously maintained its commitment to nonviolence, tolerance, and peace. I personally find it very impressive the way PT seeks to promote dialogue on alternatives to war while ‘educating and raising the consciousness of the public on issues of war, peace, and the underlying causes of terrorism’ and supporting and offering fellowship to anyone seeking ‘nonviolent responses to all forms of terrorism, both individual and institutional.’ At the same time, PT calls attention to threats to civil liberties in the United States, acknowledging the fellowship of all peoples affected by violence and war, and encouraging a ‘multilateral, collaborative effort to bring those responsible for the September 11, 2001 attacks to justice in accordance with the principles of international law.’ Such wisdom should be embraced by all Americans.”
