International Conference

In the week leading up to the fifth anniversary of 9/11, September 11th Families for Peaceful Tomorrows convened a meeting of more than 30 extraordinary individuals from around the world who were personally affected by violence but rejected the idea of retaliating with further violence. Instead, they have successfully built bridges between groups previously in conflict, and have formed organizations to promote justice, reconciliation and genuine peace.

This international gathering began with private sessions at the Garrison Institute, just north of New York City and continued with public events at Columbia University, Fordham University, Long Island University, New York University, Unitarian Universalist Church of All Souls, New York Society for Ethical Culture, and elsewhere.

The seeds planted at that conference grew into the International Network for Peace, a truly international network of organizations from 17 different countries, formed by survivors of terrorism, political violence and war to promote justice, reconciliation and genuine peace.
