About VOICES of September 11th


Our Mission

Over a decade since 9/11, VOICES continues to provide a wide range of programs that promote resiliency for thousands of 9/11 families, rescue workers and survivors living in the United States and abroad, commemorates the lives lost, advocates for reforms to make our country safer and shares lessons learned to assist others responding to traumatic events.

Through our active website, e-newsletters and direct mailings, our team provides up-to-date information regarding the organization and the 9/11 community.

Commemorating the Lives and Stories

In 2006 VOICES launched the 9/11 Living Memorial digital archive project to honor those who were lost, those who survived, and those who came to the rescue on September 11, 2001. VOICES' trained social workers have worked one-on-one with over 1,600 family members, collecting more than 70,000 items, including photographs and mementoes. In the 9/11 Living Memorial, these collections create personalized tributes of those lost on 9/11. The archive also includes personal accounts from survivors and rescue workers, narratives from organizations and corporations directly affected by 9/11, an interactive directory of 9/11 memorials, and a guest book to share thoughts and memories.

In constructing the 9/11 Living Memorial digital archive, VOICES provides solace to family members, preserves a momentous event in a unique and detailed manner, and educates future generations on the facts and personal recollections of the September 11th attacks. Unlike other commemorative memorials, the 9/11 Living Memorial project uses digital technology to provide intimate and fresh first hand accounts. Upon completion, the 9/11 Living Memorial will be a core component of the National September 11 Memorial & Museum at the World Trade Center site.

The 9/11 Living Memorial project was originally inspired by a concept conceived by September's Mission and its founder, Monica Iken.

Advocating for Reforms

VOICES has made important contributions to public policy by advocating for the establishment of the independent, bipartisan 9/11 Commission and passage of the Collins-Lieberman Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act of 2004, the H.R. 1: Implementing Recommendations of the 9/11 Commission Act of 2007, and the Zadroga Bill of 2011.

In addition, Ms. Fetchet personally testified on 9/11 issues before the 9/11 Commission of 2003, the U.S. Senate's Governmental Affairs Committee in 2004, and the House Subcommittee on National Security, Emerging Threats and International Relations in 2006, among other agencies and organizations. VOICES continues to support implementation of the 9/11 Commission's recommendations for government reform.

VOICES promotes public policy to promote improved local and national preparedness and government reforms to improve homeland security. Ms. Fetchet is a sought after speaker for forums and summits related to homeland security and 9/11 family issues.

Sharing our Lessons

In November 2009, VOICES traveled to London to meet with UK 9/11 families, building bridged internationally. The images collected will be a core component of the exhibits at the National September 11th Memorial Museum at Ground Zero, the Library of Congress and other institutions.
