Unheard Voices of 9/11

Unheard Voices of 9/11

I spent much of my twenties living out of my suitcase, touring with Divided We Fall, crisscrossing the country listening to peoples’ stories about their experience in the ongoing aftermath of 9/11.  I blogged about many of them, but there were too many for one person to capture.  I wished that one site where people could submit their own untold stories — a kind of open-source epilogue to the film.  Today, it exists.

A coalition of community organizations joined forces to create the Unheard Voices of 9/11 Project.  You can check out their site, where you can listen to stories and submit your own: http://unheardvoicesof911.org. And if you’re on the East Coast, you can attend one of their hearings to hear these voices live.
