We are pleased to announce two important projects we are undertaking as part of our work to expand VOICES Resilience Center. VOICES was recently awarded a 14-month grant from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation to develop curriculum and training that will assist communities in preparing for and responding to acts of terrorism, mass violence and natural disasters. This initiative will incorporate the organization's lessons learned from 13 years of experience in providing support services to victims' families, responders and survivors as well as other research projects VOICES has conducted in documenting the response of organizations and communities following other tragedies.

Yesterday I attended the Energy and Commerce Health Subcommittee hearing in Washington, DC. Witnesses provided an update on the World Trade Center Health Program, and first-hand accounts of their treatment for medical conditions as a result of working in the rescue and recovery efforts at the World Trade Center site. The subcommittee is evaluating the effectiveness of the program and considering the reauthorization of the Zadroga Act, which expires in 2016. Firefighters, responders and Congressional supporters attended the hearing to show solidarity for passage of this important legislation.

This Monday, May 25 marks the 146th observance of Memorial Day, where we honor and remember the brave men and women who have lost their lives while serving in our military. Since September 11, 2001, more than 2.5 million service members have been deployed to the Middle East, and thousands have given their lives in the line of duty. Their dedication to serving our country continues to ensure the protection of our freedoms as American citizens, and this weekend is a time to honor their lives and pay tribute to their unwavering commitment.
