Historical

September 11th Families for Peaceful Tomorrows; also known as "Families for Peaceful Tomorrows," "9/11 Families for Peaceful Tomorrows" and "Peaceful Tomorrows." The vision for September 11th Families for Peaceful Tomorrows was born when a small group of family members of those killed on September 11, 2001 in New York, New York, Washington, DC, and Pennsylvania became connected after reading each others' pleas for nonviolent and reasoned responses to the terrorist attacks. Several of these individuals met one another when they participated in the "Walk for Healing and Peace" from Washington, D.C. to New York City in late 2001. The group was launched as a project of the Fellowship of Reconciliation - USA in February 2002. The goals of the group include promoting dialogue on alternatives to war and calling attention to threats to civil liberties, human rights, and other freedoms in the U.S. as a consequence of war.
