In commemoration of the 15th Anniversary of 9/11, VOICES partnered with Grace Farms Foundation for a public discourse program centered on remembrance, renewal, and resilience. Participants discussed their perspectives on the long-standing impact of 9/11 and the current challenges we face.
Thank you to those who joined in remembering those whose lives were lost, and gained insight into how we can best prevent, respond to and recover from acts of terrorism and mass violence.
