Nossaman Pro-bono Legislative Advocacy Contributes to Establishment of 9/11 as a National day of Service and Remembrance

04.21.2009

Washington, DC (April 21, 2009) - Today, President Barak Obama signed the Edward M. Kennedy National Service Act. The law establishes September 11 as a national day of service and remembrance. Honoring the many people impacted by 9/11 by remembering the tremendous support and outpouring of volunteers that responded to the crisis has long been the mission of non-profit organization MyGoodDeed.org.

Nossaman has been involved in this historic effort supporting and advocating volunteerism through the pro-bono work of Fred Dombo. A legislative advocate and partner in the firm, he provides public policy counsel to the non-profit. MyGoodDeed.org leaders were among a select group in attendance today to witness President Obama sign the bill into law.

In addition, the press release issued today by MyGoodDeed.org is available, "President Barack Obama Signs Legislation to Establish Anniversary of 9/11 as a National day of Service and Remembrance."
