This is a new section of our web site -- we will continually be adding to it.
IPNTA is serving as a model for the importance of strong community organizations during disaster. The mobilization, activities, and cohesiveness of Independence Plaza North tenants during September 11 are being recognized locally and nationally.

11th and the Role of the Neighboorhood Association (PDF)
Her presentation, "Community Organizations Acting During Crisis: 9/11 and Neighborhood Associations" was part of a national summit entitled, The Public As An Asset, Not A Problem. A Summit on Leadership During Bioterrorism, held on February 3-4, 2003.
Johns Hopkins University's Center for Civilian Biodefense invited a representative of the Independence Plaza North Tenant Association to share our experience of 9/11/01, and the ten-day aftermath, at a seminar held in Washington DC.
The Center felt that IPN's response exemplified the positive ability
and resilience of an American Community in an impossible situation. The
audience was comprised of medical organizations, government & volunteer
emergency responders, members of the Center for Disease Control, etc.
Days later we received emails that five groups were already organizing
around the country as a direct result of IPN's presentation.
