Our world changed forever on September 11, 2001. For the first time, America was faced with a massive terrorist attack on our home soil that claimed thousands of lives. Americans realized that terrorism was no longer an isolated plane hijacking, or something that happened overseas. It was a clear threat to our everyday lives.
Now, more than 30,000 documented terrorist attacks have occurred worldwide since that awful day. ACT for America is dedicated to the prevention of terrorism through education, empowerment and engagement. We are dedicated to giving all Americans — policy makers, law enforcement, activists, educators, and the general public — the tools they need to make our country more secure.
