New Yorkers Poised to Transform Sept. 11
into a Message of Hope and Healing

For New Yorkers and everyone hoping for global peace, September 11, 2006 has a special significance. It marks 100 years to the day that Mohandas K. Gandhi launched the modern nonviolent movement. To honor the extraordinary link between both dates, New Yorkers for a Department of Peace (NY-DOP), in partnership with the M.K. Gandhi Institute for Nonviolence, has organized nationwide screenings of the movie Gandhi on September 11.

Sony Entertainment is re-releasing the Academy Award-winning movie in 7 movie theaters coast to coast including Regal Cinema, New York City near the World Trade Center. A press conference is scheduled on September 11, 2006 at 10:00 am in the Regal Cinema auditorium prior to the day’s screenings and will be open to press and invited guests.
