IN THE MEDIA:
“It is long past the time the Guantánamo Bay prison be closed. Based on our country’s values it should never have been opened. The 9/11 Families for Peaceful Tomorrows, all relatives of victims who died in 9/11, said it is incomprehensible to them that it still exists 20 years after it was opened and is an embarrassment to our country.”

We are proud to announce the upcoming Peaceful Tomorrows “Twenty Years Later” Peace and Justice Film Festival. The festival will run from Tuesday, September 7 through Sunday, September 12th. Each film will be accessible for 1-3 days, depending on rights. Each film will have a day highlighting the production and featuring live and pre-recorded speeches and panels from people associated with the film(s) for that day, and from 9/11 family members and first responders. The festival will feature virtual events, with special guests such as a live panel with Mohamedou Slahi and an introduction by James Schamus.
“Twenty Years Later” has four primary goals: to promote productive discussion and problem-solving, centering around the theme of peace and justice, through films relevant to the topic; to serve as a commemoration to the victims of the September 11th Attacks, and all events ensuing; to educate young people who have no memory of or who were not yet born on the day of the 9/11 attacks and to raise funds and awareness for September Eleventh Families for Peaceful Tomorrows, and our mission to turn our grief into action toward peace.
