New York lawyers' efforts after 9/11 are being commemorated

New York Lawyer carries the following report about "the 9/11 Project."

It was, the lawyers agree, their finest hour. Yet in all the days and weeks and months and years since then — that horrible Tuesday morning of Sept. 11, 2001 — time has failed to heal all wounds. Their work is incomplete. And so these lawyers and other professionals who distinguished themselves as members of the "9/11 Project" by providing hope and succor to surviving family members of the most vulnerable victims of terrorist mass murder at the World Trade Center will gather again next Tuesday morning. They will talk of the people they served and continue to serve — the grieving spouses and children of 70 low-income restaurant and maintenance workers and security guards, nearly all of them immigrants from Latin America, Eastern Europe, Africa and South Asia — and they will receive copies of a newly published commemorative booklet of their work.
