Excerpt: About Celebrate America's Freedoms: A Day of Remembrance In recent months, many museums have expressed a desire to unite with their communities in remembrance of Sept. 11, 2001. In response, the American Association of Museums (AAM) and the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) have developed Celebrate America's Freedoms: A Day of Remembrance. This initiative underscores museums' roles as stewards of the nation's stories and special places where communities can reaffirm and examine our: freedom to assemble, freedom to create, freedom to worship, freedom to inquire, freedom to express ideas, freedom from fear. Call to Action: Working together, museums can make a powerful statement about the richness of the American experience in communities across the United States.
