A Message from the United We Serve Campaign

In April, President Obama signed the Edward M. Kennedy Serve America Act which officially recognizes September 11 as a National Day of Service and Remembrance. This year, the President, 9/11 families, and service organizations will ask all Americans to remember 9/11 and recommit to service in their communities on that day and throughout the year.
