Our Voices: Message from the Director
VOICES Resiliency Symposium: Knowledge to Practice, Pathways to Long-Term Healing was held on Sunday, September 9 in New York City. The event focused on providing a victim-centered approach to responding to acts of terrorism and mass violence and bridging the gap between research and practice.
As we gather to commemorate the 17th Anniversary - in New York City, at the Pentagon, in Shanksville, PA and in local communities, we remember the 2,977 precious lives lost on that tragic day. September 11 is also a day to remember all those who have been affected since.
As the 17th anniversary of 9/11 approaches, we invite you to visit VOICES 9/11 Living Memorial Project, commemorating the 2,977 lives lost and documenting the stories of survivors. As you reflect and remember, consider adding a personal reflection or story to our collection.
As family and friends gather today to pay their respects to Senator John McCain on what would have been his 82nd birthday, we offer our sincere condolences. In the aftermath of 9/11, Senator McCain demonstrated remarkable leadership and character in supporting the 9/11 families’ quest for the creation of a 9/11 Commission.
From our 10th Annual Always Remember Gala in April to our Resiliency Symposium in May, conferences in Canada, welcoming a new class of interns, and happenings at the 9/11 Memorial & Museum , Voices of September 11th had a busy and productive spring! Check out highlights from our latest newsletter.
