Atlanta 9/11 events | How to participate

There are events all over metro Atlanta to memorialize the 22-year anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. Here's how you can join.

ATLANTA — Monday will mark 22 years since a series of attacks terrorized the nation, and even two decades later, the death toll has risen again after two more people were identified in 2023. 

On September 11, 2001, thousands of civilians and first responders were killed as the Twin Towers in New York and sections of the Pentagon in Washington were targeted in a deadly ambush.
