Variety of events planned to commemorate 9-11 anniversary

September 9, 2004


Local events related to the anniversary of Sept. 11 range from a disaster-readiness campaign to a "Freedom Fair" sponsored by the American Civil Liberties Union.

Here are some of the events:

  • Douglas County's Emergency Management department is promoting September as "National Preparedness Month." The department is urging people to keep emergency-supply kits, buy an all-hazards radio, and volunteer for Citizen Corps, a group that supports local first-responders.
  • People working for living wage, animal rights, the environment and other causes will gather from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday at Nova Cyber Cafe, 745 N.H., for a "Freedom Fair" sponsored by the ACLU. The event is free and includes music and refreshments.
  • A group of American studies students at Kansas University is organizing The September Project, a series of panel discussions, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday at the Kansas Union. Topics include the USA Patriot Act, peace groups and media images of Sept. 11. More information is available at
