We need your help NOW to support Federal legislation to designate the Trail as a National Park Service partner.
The 9/11 National Memorial Trail Alliance is on the Path to Federal designation.
“We’re very grateful for the immense support and bipartisan leadership from Congressmen Connolly, Fitzpatrick and Beyer,” said David G. Brickley, founder of the September 11th National Memorial Trail Alliance. “20 years ago, I had envisioned a federally designated 9/11 Trail that would commemorate that tragic day for future generations; now that opportunity is here and we are truly appreciative and excited to see this legislative process unfold within the 20th anniversary of 9/11 in hopes for President Biden to have it signed into law by Sept. 11, 2021. ”
“As our nation prepares for the 20th Anniversary of September 11th, we have a tremendous opportunity to create a lasting legacy that connects all three sites attacked that horrific day,” said Rep. Connolly (D-VA). “The September 11th National Memorial Trail will serve a particularly significant role—honoring the families and loved ones who were victims of the attack, and the heroes who saved countless lives on such a tragic day. I thank my colleagues Representatives Fitzpatrick and Beyer for their leadership, and the September 11th National Memorial Trail Alliance, especially my friend David Brickley, for their steadfast and unrelenting support of this project.”
