Ideas to Honor, Serve, and Unite on 9/11 Day of Service

Posted by Youth Service America on August 3, 2021

The September 11 National Day of Service and Remembrance (9/11 Day), is a chance to help others in tribute to those killed and injured on September 11, 2001, first responders, and the countless others who serve to defend the nation’s freedom at home and around the globe.

September 11, 2021 is the 20th Anniversary of that tragic day. Join us on 9/11 Day of Service – step forward to serve in a remarkable spirit of unity, honor, and compassion. Remember, even a small act of service is a giant act of patriotism.

As President Biden said in his Inaugural Address: “We face an attack on democracy and on truth. A raging virus. Growing inequity. The sting of systemic racism. A climate in crisis. America’s role in the world. … Now we must step up. All of us. It is a time for boldness, for there is so much to do. And this is certain: we will be judged, you and I, for how we resolve the cascading crises of our era.”
