In recognition of last year’s 19th commemoration of 9/11, we were joined by some of our international allies as we acknowledged our common experience with everyone affected by violence throughout the world. Together we considered how engagement in advocacy has helped us heal. In sharing our experiences we aspired to give hope to others who are experiencing their own trauma and grief.
Our special guests were Marina Cantacuzino, founder of The Forgiveness Project and Father Michael Lapsley, founder of the Institute for Healing of Memories – North America. Additional speakers were PT members Andrea LeBlanc and Iryna Muha.

Afghan panelists spoke with us from Kabul and abroad, joining with international panelists to bring perspectives from the lives of Afghans living courageously through the last two decades of war and the recent escalation in violence. We heard of the impact of the war upon the lives of women, youth and civilians and of seeds for peace that are being sown in its midst. The webinar went beyond the limits of troop withdrawal to present nonviolent pathways, reparations and witnessing on the long road to peace with justice for Afghanistan. The discussion was moderated by Ellen Judd, who facilitates the work of  September Eleventh Families for Peaceful Tomorrows related to Afghanistan and to the US/NATO war in Afghanistan.
