VOICES 2022 Annual Appeal
Since the tragic events of September 11, 2001, Voices Center for Resilience has provided long-term support for thousands of victims’ families, survivors and responders – a commitment that continues today.
We are leveraging our two decades of expertise by sharing lessons learned to help prepare for and respond to acts of mass violence. Working in collaboration with our partners, we are building resilient communities for tomorrow.
