Honor 9/11 Day: Unite Through Service

On September 11, 2001, our nation endured a horrific tragedy. Since then, we continue to honor the sacrifices made that day by remembering the heroes, armed forces, first responders, and countless others’ acts of service to defend our nation’s freedom. 9/11 Day of Service and Remembrance demonstrates how we can unite through service in our communities.

We ask you to commemorate the sacrifices of the victims and heroes with us this 9/11 Day through acts of service. Our goal is to spark a passion and create relationships between communities and individuals across divides that extend past this day to inspire a lifetime of service in all Americans. 

9/11 reminds us that service and unity provide us the momentum to help build a new foundation for the future that is more equitable and just. When we serve side by side with our neighbors, we can help build better communities that advance racial equity, provide more opportunity, and foster respect for individual differences.

The 9/11 Day of Service and Remembrance is Sunday, September 11. We invite you to join in service with us in the spirit of unity, not just on September 11, but all year round. Join in the spirit of #GettingThingsDone for our nation and let’s ensure that what unites us will always outshine what is trying to divide us.
