On the 15th anniversary of the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001, communities of faith will come together to reflect upon the past 15 years, the War on Terror, and ISIS. They'll discuss the roots of the new ugly head of terrorism, and how our communities can come together to create a future based on peace instead of war and terrorism. CODEPINK co-founder Medea Benjamin will be the keynote speaker, and we invite you to be there!
