Dear Fellow 9/11 Family Member,

This morning, the undersigned 9/11 family members held a press conference at Ground Zero to call attention to the critical need for thorough consultation with all 2,749 families regarding the proposed placement of our loved ones' remains in the basement of the 9/11 Memorial and Museum (MM). We believe that many families are totally unaware of this proposal. We also believe that all families must have a voice and a choice in where the remains will be placed at Ground Zero.


Since MM officials refuse to send out a consultation letter to each 9/11 family, we have been forced to contact all of the 9/11 families ourselves. We have initiated a FOIL (Freedom of Information Law) request of city and agency officials in order to be able to send a letter to each 9/11 family. In addition, in order to maintain the privacy of each family, we will retain the services of a retired New York State Judge to be the sender and recipient of all letters. We will not receive, nor do we desire to gain, access to 9/11 familiesí contact information. The only person viewing such information will be the Judge. We simply want to know the wishes of all 9/11 families concerning their loved ones' remains.

The following New York Times article provides details of today's press conference:

Also, please read this very important academic article written by one of our advisors, Dr. Chip Colwell-Chanthaphonh, which was just published in Anthropology Today.

Thank you for your continued support.
