Members of the National Council of Asian Pacific Americans (NCAPA) stand together on the ten-year anniversary of 9/11 to remember the tremendous loss of life that occurred on that day and to recommit ourselves to fundamental American values of civil rights, inclusion, and diversity.
We mourn and honor all of the victims of 9/11, including Americans of many races, ethnicity, and religions, who perished in New York City, Pennsylvania, and Washington DC, and the first responders who sacrificed their lives.
