Congresswoman Nikema Williams Statement on the 20th Anniversary of the 9/11 Terrorist Attacks

Sep 11, 2021

ATLANTA – Today, Congresswoman Nikema Williams (GA-05) issued the following statement on the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks:

“Twenty years ago today, nearly 3,000 men, women, and children died in the most evil, senseless attack on American soil. The victims came from every part of our state and country, and today we honor their lives and legacy. My thoughts and prayers are with the victims’ families as we all mourn on this infamous anniversary. While America was attacked on September 11, 2001, the country came out stronger because our enemies will never defeat us. We’ve also learned that racist, xenophobic policies in the name of national security will never work. The American ideals of freedom and equality are stronger than evil and hatred. Today, on the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, we should all recommit ourselves to those ideals.”
