The American Human Rights council (AHRC-USA) joins the nation and peace- loving people worldwide in observing the 15th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attack. This year’s observance falls amidst the rise of the threats of terrorism, extremism and hate. The US Congress declared September 11 Patriot Day and National Day of Service and Remembrance, commonly known as Patriot Day. Patriot day serves as a constant reminder that terrorism, extremism, and violence are our common enemy.
On this day, we honor the memory of the victims who lost their lives as a result of this heinous attack. On this day, AHRC-USA reaffirms that safety and human rights are compatible, and indeed, respecting human rights promotes security. As Americans, we should strive to be both secure and free.
AHRC-USA supports Patriot Week and encourages its friends and supporters to partake of the Week’s activities. Patriot Week renews America’s spirit and commitment to its core values of freedom and equality for all by celebrating the traditions that make America the leader of the free world. Anchored by the key dates of September 11 (the anniversary of the terrorists attacks) and September 17 (Constitution Day, the anniversary of the signing of the Constitution by our Founding Fathers), the schedule for each day has a separate focus. The grassroots effort is renewing the spirit of America, one person at a time, and is spreading throughout the nation. For a list of events and more information, visit: www.PatriotWeek.org
