Steve and Liz Alderman Awarded The 2011 Presidential Citizen's Medal - October 20th


ImageOn October 20, 2011, President Barack Obama honored Steve and Liz Alderman as one of 13 recipients of the 2011 Presidential Citizens Medal. The Citizens Medal was established in 1969 to recognize American citizens who have performed exemplary deeds of service for their country or their fellow citizens. "This year's recipients of the Citizens Medal. exemplify the best of what it means to be an American, and I am honored to be able to offer them a small token of our appreciation." said President Obama.

After Liz and Steve Alderman lost their son, Peter, in the World Trade Center attack on September 11, 2001, they founded the Peter C. Alderman Foundation. The Foundation works to heal the emotional wounds felt by victims of terrorism and mass violence by training health care professionals and establishing clinics in post-conflict countries including Cambodia, Uganda, Rwanda, and Haiti. Their clinics treat thousands in need and contribute to shaping a positive image of America in the world. The Aldermans receive the Citizens Medal for aiding the victims of conflict who might otherwise go unaided.

Liz Alderman wrote to Voices to share with us "what can be accomplished by following your passion. This all started because we wanted to leave a profound and indelible mark that Peter existed and that because he had lived the world would be a better place."
