From Take Back the Memorial

This is a crucial time. It now appears that the desires of New York's cultural elite may be competing head-to-head with the 9/11 Memorial & Memorial Museum for a very limited amount of funds.

While the LMDC has repeatedly said that the Memorial will take fund raising precedence, it is hard to believe that is what will happen when they are handing out $35 million federal dollars (your money) in the form of grants "to existing and new cultural institutions downtown."

We invite you to vote in our on-line poll which asks the question: "If given a choice between building a "cultural arts center" OR building the 9/11 Memorial and 9/11 Memorial Museum at the World Trade Center site, which would you choose?"
If it important to make your voice heard now so there is no question as to where we stand on this issue. To vote, please visit www.takebackthememorial.org.

We will continue to watch the situation and update you accordingly, both via email and our web site.

Thank you for your time and your continued support.
