The September 11 Family Group Coalition has released the following statement:
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
July 27, 2005
Contact: Anthony Gardner 973-216-2623 (MEDIA INQUIRIES ONLY)
New York, N.Y., July 27, 2005 - Fifteen September 11 organizations representing the majority of the families of victims lost in the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 today announced the launch of two new initiatives that will help America ?Take Back the Memorial? at Ground Zero.
?Campaign America? is the way that concerned communities across the country can show their support to ?Take Back the Memorial.? Concerned citizens are encouraged to download the Campaign America Resolution located at www.takebackthememorial.org and present it to their local city or town councils for consideration. Municipalities which have passed the resolution, will be listed on the Campaign America Honor Roll located at www.takebackthememorial.org. The passing of the Campaign America Resolution by communities across America will send a powerful message that this is America?s 9/11 Memorial, and American communities will not stand for the International Freedom Center and Drawing Center being located on the World Trade Center site.
The ?Offline Petition Drive? is an extension of the widely successful online petition by www.takebackthememorial.org. Currently the online petition has garnered over 36,000 signatures including nearly 1900 family relatives of September 11 victims. The offline petition will reach supporters without easy access to the internet. We encourage supporters to printout the Petition kit and instructions (available at www.takebackthememorial.org) and gather the signatures of friends, neighbors, and co-workers.
36523 people including 1897 9/11 family members have signed the petition.
