The International Center for 9/11 Justice is a nonprofit research and educational institute dedicated to establishing an accurate account of the 9/11 attacks and to fostering a global realization and reckoning about the causes of this world-changing crime against humanity.
Our vision is the creation of a “post-post-9/11 world.” By this, we mean a society that is no longer shaped by the false official account of 9/11 and that is committed to eradicating the elite criminality and institutional corruption that produced the 9/11 atrocities and facilitated their cover-up. It is a world that puts an end to the immoral and destructive policies enacted after 9/11 and begins to live up to the principles of peace, justice, freedom, and true democratic governance.
What We Do
The Center engages in research and educational activities that are international in scope and multidisciplinary in nature. These activities fall into three categories:
- Organizing, preserving, and presenting the best empirical 9/11 research and enormous amount of data that have been produced over the past two decades.
- Conducting new research into all aspects of the 9/11 attacks — especially those aspects that are likely to yield major advances in our understanding of 9/11 — and into events related to 9/11 that occurred before or after.
- Mounting actions aimed at raising mass public awareness and sparking broad-based demand for justice for the millions of people affected by 9/11 and its aftermath.
EDUCATION: In furtherance of its educational mission, the Center showcases the published work of the Journal of 9/11 Studies, the 2011 Toronto Hearings, and the 9/11 Consensus Panel. In addition, the Center provides an array of other written and video materials and is in the process of building a large archive of 9/11-related data. It also hosts online presentations and disseminates educational content through an active social media presence.
RESEARCH: In furtherance of its research mission, the Center coordinates research into various aspects of 9/11 and related subjects. These include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Immediate and Ongoing Impact of 9/11
- World Trade Center Destruction
- 9/11 Flights and Air Defense
- Alleged Hijackers and Their Network
- Government Officials on the Day of 9/11
- Official Investigations and Reports
- 9/11 Financial Crimes
- 9/11 Suspects
- 2001 Anthrax Attacks
- Global War on Terror
- State Crimes Against Democracy (SCADs)
- Democracy and Civil Liberties
The Center publishes new research findings in the form of books, reports, papers, and videos.
The Journal of 9/11 Studies is the peer-reviewed journal of the Center. The Journal welcomes submissions from all researchers, including those not directly affiliated with the Center. The Center also hosts a non-peer-reviewed “Debated Topics Forum” that publishes evidence-based papers and responses on long-debated questions in the 9/11 research community.
ACTION: In furtherance of its action-oriented mission, the Center spearheads all types of initiatives that have the potential to raise mass public awareness and spark broad-based demand for justice for the millions of people affected by 9/11. Among other things, the Center is currently assisting the family of British 9/11 victim Geoff Campbell in their effort to open a new inquest into Geoff’s death in the North Tower. The Center also collaborates with grassroots activists and organizations working to generate widespread public support for a new 9/11 investigation.
The Center was founded in 2008 by attorney James Gourley. Originally called the International Center for 9/11 Studies, the Center’s purpose was to promote scientific study and public education efforts regarding the 9/11 attacks.
Following the release of the National Institute of Standards and Technology’s draft report on the collapse of World Trade Center Building 7 in August 2008, the Center collaborated with Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth, Scholars for 9/11 Truth and Justice, and other scientists and engineers to submit 26 pages of comments to NIST within a short three-week public comment period. One major success of this joint effort was a revision that NIST included in its final report (based on the work of David Chandler, a board member of the Center) acknowledging that free-fall acceleration occurred during the collapse.
In 2009 and 2010, through a FOIA request and lawsuit, the Center was responsible for securing from NIST the release of tens of thousands of previously undisclosed videos and photographs, which the Center then made publicly available in their entirety. The Center also collaborated with distinguished 9/11 researcher Dr. Steven Jones to obtain the release of important data from the United States Geological Survey and had that data independently analyzed by a laboratory.
In 2011, the Center organized the International Hearings on the Events of September 11, 2001, held on the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks at Ryerson University (now called the Toronto Metropolitan University). The Toronto Hearings brought together many of the world’s leading 9/11 researchers for four days of presentations on the best evidence accumulated to date contradicting the official account of 9/11.
One year later, the Center published the 9/11 Toronto Report, which is now available for free on this website. In the ensuing years, the Center collaborated with Press for Truth on the release of various films and videos of the Toronto Hearings.
Now, more than a decade after publishing the 9/11 Toronto Report, the Center has resumed and expanded its activities. Our present goal is to consolidate the best 9/11 research to date, conduct groundbreaking new research, and provide renewed direction, energy, and unity to the worldwide pursuit of 9/11 justice as it moves into its third decade.
Our efforts to bring about a true accounting of 9/11 are made in honor of those who perished that day and because we believe such an accounting will lead to a more peaceful, just, and free society.
Support the Pursuit of 9/11 Justice
Thanks to the tireless efforts of thousands of people around the world, the pursuit of 9/11 justice is still alive and gaining momentum. Your gift will enable the Center to do its part — spearheading research, education, and action aimed at catalyzing a global 9/11 awakening.
