Flier for an Irish folk music concert with the band Dervish on September 24, 2001 at the Knitting Factory. Proceeds of the concert benefit the FDNY.
The selflessness of first responders and many others on and after 9/11, together with the widely experienced impulse to help others in the aftermath of the attacks, forged a connection between 9/11 remembrance and public service. Immediately following the attacks and continuing long after, many people organized charitable events to raise support for victims’ families, first responder agencies, and other philanthropic causes.
