Building Trust During Turbulent Times highlights the important collaboration between LinCT-AA, INVICTM and VOICES. Building upon LinCT-AA’s 2022 Better Together Conference, presenters will share their expertise based on firsthand experience, identify challenges, and propose solutions through public-private partnerships, in the US and abroad. The agenda includes presentations on global threats, legacy projects, victim-centered response, leadership strategies, and more.
9/11 Commission Documentary Discussion

The September 9 Symposium is followed by an evening panel discussion about the 9/11 Commission and highlights of Are We Safer Today? The documentary chronicles the memories and observations of the 9/11 Commissioners on the largest investigation in US history that led to sweeping intelligence reforms. The conversation will also reflect on our Nation’s progress towards implementing their recommendations as they commemorate twenty years since their formation.
September 10 Symposium

Support Beyond the 20th Anniversary addresses the many outstanding issues that continue to impact the 9/11 community more than 20 years later.

Sessions highlight mental health considerations, commemoration, compensation, pending litigation and an introduction to new agency leadership. The program features lessons learned for professionals and agencies providing victims’ services and responding to other acts of mass violence.
