I found September Eleventh Families for Peaceful Tomorrows (PT) in February 2022, when the Biden administration’s Executive Order 14064 made the prospect of 9/11 families successfully suing for billions of Afghan central bank funds seemed disturbingly real. PT members were among the foremost voices in the media speaking out against these lawsuits. My father worked for Cantor Fitzgerald, and died on 9/11 in the World Trade Center. I joined PT because as long as 9/11 family members have a political voice in this country, we should be using it to advocate for empathy and humanitarianism, not destructive security practices. Closing the Guantanamo detention center, ensuring the return of Afghan central bank funds to Afghans, and always speaking out against racist or Islamophobic practices are among the goals of PT that I care most about.
