Video: International Conference part 3 of 4
Sep 11, 2006
In the days leading up to the fifth anniversary of 9/11, September 11th Families for Peaceful Tomorrows convened a meeting of more than 30 extraordinary individuals from 17 nations who were devoted to cooperation, healing and reconciliation. The conference, "Civilian Casualties, Civilian Solutions" took place at the Garrison Institute just north of New York City and resulted in the establishment of an international network to share ideas and information. Each of the men and women joining this network had been personally affected by violence but rejected the idea of retaliating with further violence. Instead, they successfully built bridges between groups previously in conflict, and formed organizations to promote justice, reconciliation and genuine peace. Their private conference was followed by nearly two dozen public speaking events in the New York City and the Boston areas. This documentary captures some of their speeches, panels and presentations at the Garrison Institute (part 3 of 4).
