Actions for Week of September 11

Monday, September 11
Donate to 9/11 Kids' Documentary
We Go Higher is a documentary co-written and co-directed by Delaney Colaio, who was just shy of three years old when she lost her father and two uncles in the 9/11 terrorist attacks. She was one of over 3,000 children who lost at least one parent that day. The documentary will allow the kids to tell their stories in their own words. Proceeds from the film will benefit Tuesday’s Children, an organization established after 9/11 to help communities impacted by traumatic loss. Donations to cover the costs of making the movie and post-production can be made through the nonprofit International Documentary Association.

Marshal Training for Protests
The LGBT Center, Room 310
208 West 13th Street
6 p.m. - 8 p.m.

Marshals help plan and support direct-action protests. Rise and Resist explains, "We communicate with demonstrators, and we provide a buffer between our group and the NYPD or hecklers. We de-escalate conflicts between protestors, counter-protestors, and the NYPD." If you've wanted to play a more meaningful role in protest activity, this is a good opportunity.
