Emory's 9/11 Day of Unity will remember the tragedy of Sept. 11, 2001 with a variety of campus programs.

A Day of Service on Saturday, Sept. 14 offers volunteer opportunities for community projects. One service project is scheduled for Sunday, Sept. 15, for those unable to attend on Saturday for religious reasons.

Register for the service projects by  Sept. 9.

A Social Justice Dialogue will be Tuesday, Sept. 10, at 7 p.m. in Brooks Commons in Cannon Chapel. Monologues will be read by members of Emory University's Issues Troupe about those affected by the attacks, followed by a discussion of conflict resolution.

A candlelight vigil will follow at approximately 8:15 p.m.

The 9/11 Day of Unity  was begun in 2011 as a large-scale service initiative to engage the Emory community in meaningful reflection on creating global peace.
