About this grant

Beginning at sunset on Monday, September 9, through Wednesday, September 11, 2002 residents of Genesee County will be invited to participate in a series of events commemorating the victims and heroes of the September 11 tragedy. Funding will support events beginning with an interfaith unity service and concluding with a candlelight procession to the grounds of the Flint Cultural Center, where a second memorial service will take place. A community-wide service project honoring Eric Bennett, a Genesee County native who died that day, also will be held as part of the USA Act, which encourages communities to initiate a service project honoring a victim of the attack on September 11 each year.The International Institute of Flint is dedicated to promoting intercultural understanding among the people of Flint and Genesee County.
