OUR FIRST EVER VIRTUAL RETREAT:
September 11th Families for Peaceful Tomorrows’ first ever virtual retreat was held on June 6 and June 7. Almost 40 members – located from California to the United Kingdom – came together online to hear reports by our Committee Chairs and to be inspired by speakers, leaders of like-minded nonprofits, who have worked with us for a long time. Some of our members also shared their knowledge about how to best hone in on our individual abilities to tell our stories through film, writing or music.
We discussed fundraising strategies, took a hard look at our Mission and Goals and discussed our different perspectives on how to best approach the upcoming 20th year commemoration of 9/11.
We will be sending the retreat minutes to our members soon and are planning more online events to further dialogue and to learn together about issues which support our mission and goals.
JUNE 22: The Interfaith Center of New York invites you to join this year’s James Morton Interfaith Award ceremony for free and online. This year they will be honoring Anna Deavere Smith and Marian Wright Edelman. Please join for free by CLICKING HERE.
