Hope Rising: A 9/11 Musical Remembrance and Celebration
Tuesday, September 11, 2018 (Morning)
TIME: 8:00-11:00am. You are welcome to come for part or all of this program.
EVENT TYPE: Musical Performance
The Woman’s National Democratic Club (WNDC) invites you to join us to honor the heroes and fallen of 9/11, and to celebrate the strength of our diverse community through music. Bring friends and colleagues, and start the day by coming together around music and its ability to pay tribute, unify, heal, and transcend borders and boundaries.
Come meet community nonprofit leaders and those they serve – the majority of whom are newly arrived immigrants and refugees coming to the US to make a better life for themselves and their families and contribute to the strength of our nation.
