You can help the September 11th National Memorial Trail Alliance obtain Federal designation by the National Park Service. The Trail preserves and perpetuates the memory of all who were impacted on September 11, 2001. It connects the New York City National September 11th Memorial and Museum, the Flight 93 National Memorial in Somerset County, PA, and the National 9/11 Pentagon Memorial in Arlington, VA, as well as numerous locations of resilience and freedom throughout the 1,300-mile multi-use 9/11 National Memorial Trail.

The Trail would become be a world-class experience developed as a remembrance to honor all who sacrificed everything for our freedom on September 11, 2001. The Trail serves as an homage to the families, the first responders, and every generation that came before them who also sacrificed their lives to protect our freedom and our American values.

The 9/11 National Memorial Trail is an important recreational and transportation catalyst to promote tourism, economic development, healthy bodies and minds, as well as a cultural, historical, and educational opportunity for future generations.

If Legislation H.R. 2278 is passed into law, it will lead the way for the Secretary of Interior to authorize the designation as a national tour route linking the three 9/11 national memorials... Shanksville, PA, New York City, and Arlington, VA. Legislation H.R. 2278 would ensure that the legacy of this Trail of commemoration and resilience will live on forever.

We urge you to sign this petition to enlighten lawmakers on just how meaningful and important this effort is to you personally, and to our country as a whole, in commemoration of September 11, 2001.
