Thousands of people across the nation honored the tenth anniversary of 9/11 with vigils, film screenings, and service projects with a shared vision to overcome fear and hatred. Through community-based events held in synagogues, churches, mosques, community centers, and public parks, people all over the U.S. joined together to commemorate the anniversary of 9/11 through remembrance and renewal. Groundswell, a new multifaith voice for justice and social action, connected people across the U.S. to stand together against anti-Muslim bigotry on the tenth anniversary of 9/11.
