We Remember on 9/11: NYAPRS Cultural Competence Committee

NYAPRS Note: Following the horrific attacks of September 11, the NYAPRS Board decided that it was more important than ever to go forward with the next day’s start of our September 12-14 annual conference. Over 300 members from across upstate were able to get to the conference, an unforgettable experience of the power of community to comfort and strengthen each other in the face of horror.

Several months later, NYAPRS held a special 2nd conference in Brooklyn that featured a stirring keynote from Mary Ellen Copeland, just for our New York City and Long Island members who couldn’t make the first one.

We will never forget the power of reaching out and coming together and, in that spirit, following is a message of comfort and caring from our NYAPRS Cultural Competence Committee.
