What happens after the 20th anniversary of 9/11 passes? What will we have learned from 9/11 and the 20 years of #EndlessWars that have followed in Afghanistan, Iraq, Yemen, Somalia, Libya, Syria, and beyond? How do we move the United States away from war? An unusually diverse group of experts share their views. Bring questions. Join a conversation with IPS Fellow’ Phyllis Bennis and many others. Then act.
