September Eleventh Families for Peaceful Tomorrows

September Eleventh Families for Peaceful Tomorrows, also known as 9/11 Families for Peaceful Tomorrows or simply Peaceful Tomorrows, is an anti-war organiation for survivors of the September 11, 2001 attacks and friends and family members of the victims.

It aims to develop and advocate nonviolent options and actions in the pursuit of justice, in the hope that this will help break what the members see as the cycles of violence engendered by war and terrorism.

Peaceful Tomorrows was lanched on 14 February 2002 at a press conference at the United Nations headquarters by some families that had lost members in the 9/11 attacks who did not want their grief to justify attacks such as the American bombing campaign in Afghanistan, and to ensure that these actions were not be done in their names and the names of their loved ones.
