20th Anniversary of 9/11

 

VOICES 20th Anniversary

Remembrance, Reflection and Resilience is the theme of VOICES 20th Anniversary Events and Programs. For nearly two decades, these principles have guided our pioneering efforts to provide critical support for thousands of victims’ families, responders and survivors, and to advocate on their behalf for national public policy reform.

The 20th Anniversary is a milestone for the families and friends who lost loved ones on September 11, for our nation that was forever changed that day, and for VOICES as an organization.

As thought leaders, and as an advocate for victims’ rights, we are sharing our expertise to assist communities impacted by other tragedies in the United States and worldwide. VOICES 20th Anniversary Commemoration Programs and Events reflect on our nearly two decades of work and provide meaningful long-term support that is vitally needed during this challenging time.
