9/11 Day Leaders Call For Unity in Observance of the 16th Anniversary of 9/11 Attacks

Nation’s Largest Day of Service: Major volunteer projects planned throughout the nation to promote religious and racial diversity, empathy and togetherness; tens of millions expected to participate, including to support the victims of Hurricane Harvey

Cast of Tony Award-winning musical COME FROM AWAY to perform for volunteers

New York, NY (September 1, 2017) – 9/11 Day leaders, who founded the federally-recognized September 11 National Day of Service and Remembrance, are calling upon all Americans to put aside their differences and observe the upcoming 16th anniversary of the September 11, 2001, attacks as a national day of unity and charitable service.

“On 9/11, and in its aftermath, we were reminded once again that America is at its best when we come together and focus on our common humanity, embracing and respecting our differences as we pursue solutions to our challenges,” said Jay S. Winuk, co-founder and executive vice president of the nonprofit 9/11 Day and who lost his brother, Glenn J. Winuk, an attorney and volunteer firefighter and EMT who died in the line of duty on 9/11. “For 9/11 this year, we hope all Americans will take that to heart, and pay tribute by joining together and spending the day performing good deeds."

Meals packed for food-challenged New Yorkers and Hurricane Harvey Victims

In New York, more than 2,500 volunteers, including Wounded Warriors, military veterans, members of eight different faith-based groups, employers and employees, various nonprofit organizations and other New Yorkers, will join together in a show of unity on 9/11, assembling more than 500,000 meals in observance of the September 11 National Day of Service and Remembrance (“9/11 Day”). These pre-packaged meals will be distributed by City Harvest and Food Bank of New York to individuals in need in the NYC area. Thousands of the packed meals will also be provided as emergency food supplies to assist the Hurricane Harvey relief efforts in Houston and surrounding areas.

Principal funding for 9/11 Day in 2017 is again being provided by Citi Foundation; American Express Company; and Corporation for National and Community Service.

During one of the meal-packing shifts cast members from the Tony Award-winning musical COME FROM AWAY, which plays at Broadway’s Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre, will perform “Prayer” from the show, the lyrics and spirit of which are directly relevant to the mission of 9/11 Day. COME FROM AWAY tells the extraordinary true story of the 7,000 airline passengers who were stranded in in Gander, Canada, in the immediate aftermath of the 9/11 attacks, and how the town welcomed them with generosity, compassion and friendship.

The NYC Meal Pack for 9/11 Day is being led by the 9/11 Day nonprofit, with U.S. Hunger, and is being co-hosted by NYC Service; New York Cares; National September 11 Memorial & Museum; Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum; UJA Federation of New York; Catholic Charities of New York; Islamic Relief USA; and the Wounded Warrior Project.

30 Million Americans Expected to Participate in 9/11 Day; Free Teaching Tools for Teachers

Research conducted bi-annually by Los Angeles-based Horizon Consumer Science, on behalf of 9/11 Day, reveals that 28 million Americans annually observe the September 11 National Day of Service and Remembrance (“9/11 Day”) by volunteering, supporting charities, and performing other good deeds. As such, 9/11 Day is the nation’s largest annual day of charitable engagement.

Americans from all 50 states are expected to participate in 9/11 Day this year. In Washington, DC, for example, more than 5,000 volunteers will be on the National Mall over two days, September 10 and 11, packing over one million meals at a 9/11 project organized by AARP. In other cities and towns across the country, including Boston, Phoenix, Austin, Texas, Philadelphia, Miami, Atlanta, Los Angeles, San Francisco and many other cities, Americans will pause to serve in remembrance of the events and victims of 9/11, with many helping to support the victims of Hurricane Harvey.

“The way people are joining together in response to Hurricane Harvey to help each other regardless of race, religion on other differences is yet another a reminder that, in the final analysis, we are all bonded by our common humanity,” said David Paine, president of 9/11 Day. “We hope that 9/11 Day will again provide inspiration to encourage all Americans to remember the importance of valuing and treating each other with respect and kindness every day of the year.”

9/11 Campaigning Moratorium Urged


New York, August 25 – The organization 9/11 Day is calling upon the principal nominees for president, Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton, Gary Johnson, and Jill Stein, to suspend all campaign activity on Sunday, September 11, 2016, in observance of the 15th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. 9/11 Day is a non-profit that successfully led the effort to establish September 11 as a federally-recognized National Day of Service and Remembrance.

9/11 Day delivered letters of request to each campaign headquarters yesterday. The letters were signed by the co-founders of 9/11 Day, family members who lost loved ones on 9/11, and leaders of 9/11 support groups. Copies of these letters are also being sent to the Democratic National Committee and the Republican National Committee, asking each to request that all state and local candidates across the country suspend their political campaigns on 9/11/16 as well.

The “No Campaigning on 9/11 Pledge” is part of 9/11 Day’s mission to promote unity, empathy and service for the anniversary of the September 11, 2001 attacks.

A growing list of individuals across the country are voicing their support for the letter of request through a petition launched by 9/11 Day board member Alice Hoagland. Ms. Hoagland, who lost her son Mark Bingham in the crash of hijacked Flight 93, made a personal appeal to the presidential candidates to cease campaigning on September 11. The petition already has nearly 25,000 signatures.

“9/11 helped us realize in an instant how insignificant our differences really are in comparison to our common goodness as human beings and our shared sense of compassion for those in need,” said Alice Hoagland. “It hardly mattered what political party we supported, or whether we came from a Red State or Blue State. At that moment, we were all human beings, and it is important that we find a way to keep that spirit of unity alive.”

Rather than engaging in regular campaign activity, 9/11 Day suggested that political candidates take the day to engage in personal expressions of service, and to speak to others in nonpartisan terms about the importance of remembrance on 9/11, and the value of all Americans helping those most in need.

"Americans everywhere wish to observe 9/11 in the same spirit of national unity, prayer and service that brought our country together in the immediate aftermath of the attacks," said David Paine, president and co-founder of 9/11 Day.

Added Jay Winuk, 9/11 Day co-founder, whose brother Glenn J. Winuk perished in the line of duty in the 9/11 attacks: “Presidential and other candidates have 364 other days of the year to voice their policiesand positions, and trade barbs. We respectfully ask that on this one day, each election cycle, they use their voices to spread the word about the importance of service to honor our first responders and those who were lost. They can set a strong example for our nation by engaging in service-oriented activities. The focus here should be on bringing people together, not apart, and cherishing our common humanity as a nation.”
