Statement from AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka commemorating the 19th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks:
Nineteen years ago today, Americans confronted evil with courage, grace and solidarity. As we reflect nearly two decades later, we send love to all those families who mourn every day for the more than 3,000 lives lost, many who were union members. We also honor the heroic first responders who gave their lives to save so many and continue to pray for those who will suffer health effects for the rest of their lives.
