Published 2:57 pm, Thursday, September 5, 2013Former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton will be the keynote speaker at the Voices of September 11th "Always Remember" Gala on Oct. 16 at Guastavino's in New York City.
Clinton, who also is a former U.S. senator from New York, has been a longstanding supporter of Voices of September 11th, which is based in New Canaan, beginning with the first meetings in her Senate office just days after the terrorist attacks. As a senator, she attended the Voices' annual Day of Remembrance events, taking time each year to visit with 9/11 families following the memorial services at the World Trade Center site.
The gala will raise funds to support Voices of September 11th's ongoing work to provide long-term services for 9/11 families, survivors and responders. The event will also support Voices' efforts to help families heal after other tragedies.

Clinton served as the 67th secretary of state from 2009 to 2013, after nearly four decades in public service as an advocate, attorney, first lady and senator. In 2000, Clinton made history as the first first lady elected to the U.S. Senate. After Sept. 11, 2001, she helped secure more than $20 billion for the rebuilding of New York City and fought for the health needs of first responders who risked their lives at ground zero.
