Dr. Paul Arpaia of the History Department has been selected by his peers to join the steering committee of September 11th Families for Peaceful Tomorrows, an organization founded by family members of those killed on September 11, 2001, who have united to turn their grief into action for peace.

As the executive body of Peaceful Tomorrows, the steering committee oversees the daily administration of the organization and serves in an advisory capacity.

Dr. Arpaia will contribute his expertise in history and will serve as a spokesperson on issues relating to the Rule of Law and the protection of civil liberties, especially ones targeting Muslim-American communities.

The organization is planning a series of special national and international events for this coming September that will commemorate those lost in the attacks of September 11, 2001, and the subsequent bloodshed that resulted.
