Between 15 and 16 September 2012, Women without Borders (WwB), in conjunction with Tuesday’s Children, sought to nurture its cohesive network of Sisters Against Violent Extremism (SAVE network) by administering a workshop that brought 15 women together, whose spouses or children passed away during 9/11. WwB sought to highlight the commonalities of loss and tragedy that result from acts of violent extremism. ‘We Refuse to Hate: Mothers of 9/11’ is a short documentary that calls the public to action in promoting peace through storytelling from one woman to another, and strategising how to contribute to a new culture of reconciliation and trust building on a global level.
