VOICES Summer Interns Produce Short Film

Each year, VOICES high school interns produce a short film based on their research and interviews conducted on topics related to 9/11. Notably, this years’ interns were too young to have any memory of the attacks on September 11 but in their lifetime have witnessed other terrible acts of mass violence. The students interviewed a wide range of individuals and chronicled the stories of survivors and responders, highlighting their personal resilience and the relevance of 9/11 today.

Cantor Fitzgerald Charity Day

On September 11, VOICES participated in Cantor Fitzgerald Charity Day. This year, we were thrilled to have our friend from ESPN Mike Greenberg join us for the day as VOICES ambassador! Mike enjoyed meeting the traders and helping them in closing several trades.

Cantor donates 100% of their revenues on 9/11 to the Cantor Fitzgerald Relief Fund, and to hundreds of charities around the world. Since its inception, Charity Day has raised an incredible $147 million globally. Our sincere thanks to Cantor Fitzgerald for making this day possible, and for helping so many worthy causes! More.
