September 11, 2011 marked the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. To commemorate this anniversary, and in an effort to create a statement of hope and healing for the future, Ribbons of Hope was... More > created.
The vision: invite participants to carry a ribbon inscribed with a message of hope and healing to downtown Manhattan over the course of the anniversary weekend.

This book chronicles the Ribbons of Hope project during its initial installation in Battery Park.
Ribbons of Hope is now a traveling interactive exhibit. Messages continue to be added. Learn more at: Ribbons-of-Hope.com
