The Let Our Past Change Our Future Gala will honor three-time Academy Award nominee and Tony Award-winning director Stephen Daldry, and will feature cocktails and dinner.
Through the events of September 11, 2001, Tuesday’s Children has learned that terrorism touches us all, but no one group more than children of the victims. Tuesday’s Children has made a long-term commitment to meet the needs of every individual impacted by the events of September 11. They provide support at each and every stage of life through innovative, needs-based programs and mental health support. Their international initiative, Project Common Bond, unites young people from around the globe to share their common experience of losing a loved one in a terrorist act, to heal together, and to learn important leadership and peace-building skills. Tuesday’s Children’s strength is building community which has a profound and positive impact on collective healing.
Tuesday’s Children creates programs that bring together children and families whose lives have been dramatically altered by an act of terrorism. Their programs include: Family Engagement; Mentoring; Child, Adolescent and Young Adult Programs; Helping Heals; Adult Programs; Project Common Bond; Counseling Services and the First Responder Alliance.
The event will take place at The Lighthouse at Chelsea Piers, 23rd and West Side Highway, New York. More information can be found here.
