Scholars and other educators have historically played a significant role in effecting social and political change, and the public often looks to academic experts for leadership in this area. Public demonstrations, civil disobedience, economic boycotts, petitions and appeals to Congress are just a few examples of different types of actions. Scholars for 9/11 Truth and Justice advocates only civility and nonviolence in any actions we support.
One recent example of an effective action by a group of scholars, in January of 2007, involved a Pentagon official publicly calling for US corporations to boycott any law firms who had helped Guantanamo detainees pro bono (and proceeded to list those who were helping). In response, more than 100 deans from the nation's law schools quickly organized to sign on and produce a strong public statement denouncing the official. By the next day the official had rescinded his statements and apologized.
We believe that in addition to spreading information through essays, talks and media, actions may be required to bring the necessary change to expose the truths of the 9/11 attacks. Below are actions and ideas for actions which we support and encourage you to participate in.
- Support The Feal Good Foundation The primary mission of the FealGood Foundation, a non-profit organization, is to spread awareness and educate the public about the catastrophic health effects on 9/11 first responders, as well as to provide assistance to relieve these great heroes of the financial burdens placed on them over the last five years. A secondary goal of the Foundation is to create a network of advocacy on 9/11 healthcare issues. The Foundation not only advocates for Ground Zero workers, but shows others how they can advocate for themselves and help others through grassroots activism.
