In commemoration of the 15th Anniversary of 9/11, Grace Farms Foundation is partnering with Voices of September 11th for a public discourse centered on remembrance, renewal, and resilience.

Distinguished speakers and panelists, including Senator Richard Blumenthal, Senator Chris Murphy, Congressman Jim Himes, Ambassador Tim Roemer, survivors, and family members, will discuss their perspectives on the long-standing impact of 9/11 and the current challenges we face. Join us in remembering those whose lives were lost and gain insight into how we can best prepare against, prevent, and recover from acts of terrorism and mass violence.

Registration is required; limited lunches are available for $10 with pre-registration.

About Voices of September 11th:
