Tomorrow: Get Engaged - Change America

We all remember where we were the moment we learned of the tragedy of September 11. Eight years later, we ask for your help to honor the victims and heroes of that day through the first federally recognized September 11 National Day of Service and Remembrance.

This designation is the culmination of years of work led by the 9/11 community, including family members and support groups, who came together to create this observance as a way for the nation to forever remember the lives of those lost and injured, and pay tribute to those who rose in service following the attacks.

How you can help:

***Remember and Serve on 9/11: This September 11, we encourage you to remember the victims and heroes of 9/11 and honor their memory by serving in your community. Visit to find a volunteer opportunity, or organize a project on your own.

***Recruit New Volunteers: Spread the word and ask five new volunteers (friends, family, faith group members, colleagues, book club attendees, etc) to pledge to serve with you on 9/11. Use this letter from the President and First Lady to help inspire others to action.
