Press Release

“Today, our country comes together to remember those who perished in the tragic attacks of September 11, 2001, to celebrate the heroic actions of our first responders, and to renew our resolve that such attacks must never recur. This is a day to put politics aside and reflect on the common bonds and values that unite us.”

“In an effort to renew the spirit of unity and shared purpose that emerged after the attacks, Congress has designated September 11 as a National Day of Service and Remembrance. This weekend, thousands of community service events are taking place around the country. I will take part in a service project this evening at Red Hat Amphitheater in downtown Raleigh, and I invite and encourage residents of the Fourth District to join me or to participate in similar efforts. You can find more information at”

“We must also ensure that the first responders who survived the September 11 attacks receive the medical care that they need and deserve. Congress must pass the James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Reauthorization Act to continue providing critical benefits to these men and women, who demonstrated such a selfless commitment to their country, and to give them the assurance that Congress will not turn its back on them in their time of need.”
