The September Project

The September Project is a collection of people, groups, and organizations working to create a day of engagement, a day of conversation, a day of democracy.

A friend of mine is working on The September Project to bring together people around the country on September 11 to “share and discuss ideas about democracy, citizenship, and patriotism through public talks, roundtables, and performances.” For the most part, these events will be taking place in public libraries. I think that’s pretty rad considering that libraries are public spaces dedicated to making information more accessible and librarians have been some of the greatest activists in the fight against government suppression of knowledge.

There are almost 200 events currently scheduled, with more popping up daily. This is a fun project to support, so if one’s not scheduled in your city, consider organizing it!
