REMEMBERING 9-11: 9/11 NATIONAL DAY OF SERVICE AND REMEMBRANCE

MyGoodDeed, which represents the interests

of many 9/11 organizations, was the

first group to formally call for September

11 to be designated as a federally-recognized

National Day of Service and Remembrance.

Progress was made early when, in

2002, President George W. Bush declared

September 11 “Patriot Day” to honor both

the victims and heroes of the September

11 attacks, and highlighted the spirit of

service by launching USA Freedom Corps.

In 2004, Congress unanimously passed

H. Con. Res. 473, expressing the sense of

Congress that September 11 should be a

national day of service and compassion. In

2008 President Bush amended the Patriot

Day proclamation to specifically include

“volunteering” as an appropriate form

of remembrance. In 2009, Congress, in a

bi-partisan, bi-cameral action, passed the

Edward M. Kennedy Serve America Act,

which for the first time authorized the

President of the United States to formally

designate 9/11 as a National Day of Service

and Remembrance. On September

11, 2009 President Obama amended the

Patriot Day proclamation to officially and

permanently make 9/11 a National Day of

Service and Remembrance, as requested

by Congress and the 9/11 community.
