About Us

Our mission

To unite and activate Americans everywhere to turn the events of 9/11 into positive action.

Our vision

To become a unifying brand for Americans to rally around to celebrate positive action.

Our motivation

Often it’s the most trying events that unite the greatest causes, bringing different groups with common goals to the same table.

With a collective voice and a united front, diverse organizations stand to create a movement far larger and more powerful than the sum of their separate parts.

Action America is a joint effort among corporations, individuals and non-profit organizations committed to both honoring those affected by the events of September 11th and unifying the country through positive action.

The effort is co-chaired by Marquis Jet Founder Kenny Dichter and AOL CEO Tim Armstrong, and supports the 9/11 Memorial and New York Says Thank You, guided by KBS+P and MDC Partners, among others.

!!Act with us and help turn a milestone into a movement!!
